Subject[PATCH 5.4 103/109] blk-mq: consider non-idle request as "inflight" in blk_mq_rq_inflight()
From: Ming Lei <>

commit 05a4fed69ff00a8bd83538684cb602a4636b07a7 upstream.

dm-multipath is the only user of blk_mq_queue_inflight(). When
dm-multipath calls blk_mq_queue_inflight() to check if it has
outstanding IO it can get a false negative. The reason for this is
blk_mq_rq_inflight() doesn't consider requests that are no longer
MQ_RQ_IN_FLIGHT but that are now MQ_RQ_COMPLETE (->complete isn't
called or finished yet) as "inflight".

This causes request-based dm-multipath's dm_wait_for_completion() to
return before all outstanding dm-multipath requests have actually
completed. This breaks DM multipath's suspend functionality because
blk-mq requests complete after DM's suspend has finished -- which
shouldn't happen.

Fix this by considering any request not in the MQ_RQ_IDLE state
(so either MQ_RQ_COMPLETE or MQ_RQ_IN_FLIGHT) as "inflight" in
