Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH] use uptodate bit to test status of bios (take2)

SCSI will not always fail the rest of the IO when the fail fast bit
is not set, so this may be a bug in dm-crypt and dm-raid1.

It looks like this test should be "if (!uptodate) {".


Also, couldn't we do this in clone_endio() in dm.c and not have to change all the targets? Something like this.

We also want to preserve the error value. Hopefully soon they will
be meaningful ;) This means we have the normal error case, and the funky one
where uptodate is cleared and error is 0.
