That seems like a bit of a mixup, what ties a stopped queue to recovery?

This was coding to SCSI behavior again. I tried to reduce the case of
waking the eh if the transport moved the target into a blocked state. It
might be redundant as FC has eh blocking and timer_reset. iSCSI has
blocking but not eh blocking.

All iscsi drivers should have blocking and timer reset now, so if a transport problem casues a IO error to be sent to dm, then when blk_abort_request is called that should prevent the scsi layer from sending the whole host into recovery.

I do not remember the problem with the lack of eh blocking though. Did we need that too?
