I mean if sas disk plug-in in 2 seconds after plug-out with power
supply. sas disk can continue response for the active io.
such as: disk's phy up in 2 seconds after phy down.

Yes, I mean sas_task_abort(), the two function names are confusing to
me. ^_^

I agree with you. Since we have a ready-made interface for mark all
acive io to failed for sata disks, it may be easier to optimize sata
disks first. If we don't implement similar interfaces in libsas or lldd,
what good suggestions do you have?
