This solves a potential data corruption when
a request is being terminated with RESERVATION
CONFLICT and queue_if_no_path is active; the
request will be queued until the reservation
status changes and then transmitted.

I had the same bz. To handle it I just converted the error to some other
-EXYZ value. But like I said in my patch that I sent to the list I did
not like it much.

Yeah, that was my thought, too.
The scsi result codes simply don't fit on the -EXXX values.


What about replaceing -EXXX errors with some new BLKERR values?

Send some comments on the patch in the other mail.
