From: Anna Schumaker <Anna.Schumaker@Netapp.com>

We used to do this before 3453d5708b33, but this was changed to better
handle the NFS4ERR_SEQ_MISORDERED error code. This commit fixed the slot
re-use case when the server doesn't receive the interrupted operation,
but if the server does receive the operation then it could still end up
replying to the client with mis-matched operations from the reply cache.

We can fix this by sending a SEQUENCE to the server while recovering from
a SEQ_MISORDERED error when we detect that we are in an interrupted slot
situation.

Fixes: 3453d5708b33 (NFSv4.1: Avoid false retries when RPC calls are interrupted)

Hmm... I am a little concerned about the wait here, since we don't know
what kind of thread this is.

Any chance we could kick off a _nfs41_proc_sequence asynchronously, and
then perhaps requeue the original task to wait for the next free slot? 
I suppose one issue there would be if the 'original task is an earlier
call to _nfs41_proc_sequence, but perhaps that can be worked around?

I'll try it and see what happens. Thanks for the feedback!

I haven't had much luck getting this to work. The asynchronous task is
easy enough, but I haven't been able to get the original onto a new
slot yet. Is there a good way to do this without a new call to
nfs4_setup_sequence()? nfs41_sequence_process() only has the
sequence_res available, and there are enough call sites that adding in
sequence_args creates a lot of churn.

I could use the rpc task to see if it's sending a sequence, and only
do this if it's not. I don't know if there is a cleaner way to do
this.

Do you have any suggestions?

No, you really have to let it restart the request. So perhaps just
reset res->sr_slot to NULL (since the new sequence task now owns the
old slot) and then run a retry.
