Subject[PATCH V3] blk-mq: count the hctx as active before allocate tag
Date
Currently, we count the hctx as active after allocate driver tag
successfully. If a previously inactive hctx try to get tag first
time, it may fails and need to wait. However, due to the stale tag
->active_queues, the other shared-tags users are still able to
occupy all driver tags while there is someone waiting for tag.
Consequently, even if the previously inactive hctx is waked up, it
still may not be able to get a tag and could be starved.

To fix it, we count the hctx as active before try to allocate driver
tag, then when it is waiting the tag, the other shared-tag users
will reserve budget for it.

V3:
add more detailed comment

V2:
only invoke blk_mq_tag_busy w/o io scheduler in blk_mq_get_request
