[dm-devel] [PATCH 08/11] dm: mpath: use noflush suspending



From: Kiyoshi Ueda <k-ueda ct jp nec com>

This patch implements the pushback feature for the multipath target.

The pushback request is used when:
  1) there are no valid paths;
  2) queue_if_no_path was set;
  3) a suspend is being issued with the DMF_NOFLUSH_SUSPENDING flag.
     Otherwise bios are returned to applications with -EIO.

To check whether queue_if_no_path is specified or not, you need to check
both queue_if_no_path and saved_queue_if_no_path, because presuspend saves
the original queue_if_no_path value to saved_queue_if_no_path.

The check for 1 already exists in both map_io() and do_end_io().
So this patch adds __must_push_back() to check 2 and 3.


Test results:
See the test results in the preceding patch.
