[dm-devel] [PATCH v2] dm mpath: revert "dm: Call blk_abort_queue on failed paths"



This reverts commit 224cb3e981f1b2f9f93dbd49eaef505d17d894c2.

Multipath was previously made to use blk_abort_queue() to allow for
lower latency path deactivation.  The call to blk_abort_queue has proven
to be unsafe due to a race (between blk_abort_queue and scsi_request_fn)
that can lead to list corruption, from:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/dm-devel/2010-November/msg00085.html

"the cmd gets blk_abort_queued/timedout run on it and the scsi eh
somehow is able to complete and run scsi_queue_insert while
scsi_request_fn is still trying to process the request."
