Subject[PATCH V2] blk-mq: insert rq with DONTPREP to hctx dispatch list when requeue
Date
When requeue, if RQF_DONTPREP, rq has contained some driver
specific data, so insert it to hctx dispatch list to avoid any
merge. Take scsi as example, here is the trace event log (no
io scheduler, because RQF_STARTED would prevent merging),

kworker/0:1H-339 [000] ...1 2037.209289: block_rq_insert: 8,0 R 4096 () 32768 + 8 [kworker/0:1H]

scsi_inert_test-1986 [000] ..s1 2047.221119: block_rq_complete: 8,0 R () 32776 + 8 [0]

(32768 + 8) was requeued by scsi_queue_insert and had RQF_DONTPREP.
Then it was merged with (32776 + 8) and issued. Due to RQF_DONTPREP,
the sdb only contained the part of (32768 + 8), then only that part
was completed. The lucky thing was that scsi_io_completion detected
it and requeued the remaining part. So we didn't get corrupted data.
However, the requeue of (32776 + 8) is not expected.
