Subject[PATCH v2 5/5] sbitmap: correct wake_batch recalculation to avoid potential IO hung
Commit 180dccb0dba4f ("blk-mq: fix tag_get wait task can't be awakened")
mentioned that in case of shared tags, there could be just one real
active hctx(queue) because of lazy detection of tag idle. Then driver tag
allocation may wait forever on this real active hctx(queue) if wake_batch
is > hctx_max_depth where hctx_max_depth is available tags depth for the
actve hctx(queue). However, the condition wake_batch > hctx_max_depth is
not strong enough to avoid IO hung as the sbitmap_queue_wake_up will only
wake up one wait queue for each wake_batch even though there is only one
waiter in the woken wait queue. After this, there is only one tag to free
and wake_batch may not be reached anymore. Commit 180dccb0dba4f ("blk-mq:
fix tag_get wait task can't be awakened") methioned that driver tag
allocation may wait forever. Actually, the inactive hctx(queue) will be
truely idle after at most 30 seconds and will call blk_mq_tag_wakeup_all
to wake one waiter per wait queue to break the hung. But IO hung for 30
seconds is also not acceptable. Set batch size to small enough that depth
of the shared hctx(queue) is enough to wake up all of the queues like
sbq_calc_wake_batch do to fix this potential IO hung.

Although hctx_max_depth will be clamped to at least 4 while wake_batch
recalculation does not do the clamp, the wake_batch will be always
recalculated to 1 when hctx_max_depth <= 4.
