Hi Martin,
I tested this code, but found a problem.

When called scsi_prep_fn return BLKPREP_INVALID, we should
use the same code with BLKPREP_KILL in scsi_prep_return. This
patch should add a line of code as follows:

 drivers/scsi/scsi_lib.c | 1 +
 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+)

You are right!

Applied to 4.5/scsi-fixes.
