This patch seems kind of convoluted to me, and even with the fix to
temporarily set dev_loss_tmo to one greater than fast_io_fail_tmo,
there is still a broken case

If you currently have:
fast_io_fail_tmo off
dev_loss_tmo <something_less_than_600>

and you want

fast_io_fail_tmo 600
dev_loss_tmo <something_greater_than_600>

This will fail, since it will try to set dev_loss_tmo to 601 with
fast_io_fail_tmo set to off (Granted, I doubt that 600 is a
popular fast_io_fail_tmo value).

But in the general case, If you aren't turning off fast_io_fail_tmo and
the current dev_loss_tmo is greater than the target fast_io_fail_tmo
(this seems like it is the most common case), you unecessarily go through
the work of first setting dev_loss_tmo to its current value.

        if (mpp->fast_io_fail != MP_FAST_IO_FAIL_UNSET &&
            mpp->fast_io_fail != MP_FAST_IO_FAIL_ZERO &&
            mpp->fast_io_fail != MP_FAST_IO_FAIL_OFF) {
                /* Check if we need to temporarily increase dev_loss_tmo
 * */
                ret = sysfs_attr_get_value(rport_dev, "dev_loss_tmo",
                                           value, 16);

<SNIP>

        }
        if (strlen(value)) {
                ret = sysfs_attr_set_value(rport_dev, "dev_loss_tmo",
                                           value, strlen(value));

I have a patch that solves this issue differently.  It still checks
dev_loss_tmo, but it always sets fast_io_fail_tmo first.  If the target
fast_io_fail_tmo is greater than or equal to the current dev_loss_tmo,
it sets fast_io_fail_tmo to one less than the current dev_loss_tmo.
This always works, since the lowest value possible for dev_loss_tmo is 1
and the lowest value possible for fast_io_fail_tmo is 0. Then it sets
dev_loss_tmo. Finally, if necessary, it sets fast_io_fail_tmo to its
final value.

I'll push that shortly.
