Subject[PATCH 1/1] scsi: storvsc: Fix swiotlb bounce buffer leak in confidential VM
storvsc_queuecommand() maps the scatter/gather list using scsi_dma_map(),
which in a confidential VM allocates swiotlb bounce buffers. If the
I/O submission fails in storvsc_do_io(), the I/O is typically retried
by higher level code, but the bounce buffer memory is never freed.
The mostly like cause of I/O submission failure is a full VMBus
channel ring buffer, which is not uncommon under high I/O loads.
Eventually enough bounce buffer memory leaks that the confidential
VM can't do any I/O. The same problem can arise in a non-confidential
VM with kernel boot parameter swiotlb=force.

Fix this by doing scsi_dma_unmap() in the case of an I/O submission
error, which frees the bounce buffer memory.
