Hello Tejun,

Some important block drivers systematically return BLK_EH_RESET_TIMER
from their timeout handler, e.g. the virtio-scsi initiator driver. What
will the consequence be for these drivers if a blk_mq_complete_request()
call is ignored? Will the request for which the completion was ignored
get stuck?

Thanks,

Bart.
