From: Ming Lin <ming.l@ssi.samsung.com>

For some protocols like NVMe over Fabrics we need to be able to send
initialization commands to a specific queue.

Based on an earlier patch from Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>.

We probably want to check 'if (hctx_idx < q->nr_hw_queues)' before
getting the hctx. Even if hctx_idx was origially valid, it's possible
(though unlikely) blk_queue_enter waits on reallocating h/w contexts,
which can make hctx_idx invalid.

Yes, I'll update it.

Why are we duplicating this code here? If NOWAIT isn't set, then we'll
always return a request. bt_get() will run the queue for us, if it needs
to. blk_mq_alloc_request() does this too, and I'm guessing that code was
just copied. I'll fix that up. Looks like this should just be:

	rq = __blk_mq_alloc_request(&alloc_data, rw);
	if (rq)
		return rq;

	blk_queue_exit(q);
	return ERR_PTR(-EWOULDBLOCK);

for this case.

Yes,

But the bt_get() reminds me that this patch actually has a problem.

blk_mq_alloc_request_hctx() ->
  __blk_mq_alloc_request() ->
    blk_mq_get_tag() -> 
      __blk_mq_get_tag() ->
        bt_get() ->
          blk_mq_put_ctx(data->ctx);

Here are blk_mq_get_ctx() and blk_mq_put_ctx().

static inline struct blk_mq_ctx *blk_mq_get_ctx(struct request_queue *q)
{       
        return __blk_mq_get_ctx(q, get_cpu());
} 

static inline void blk_mq_put_ctx(struct blk_mq_ctx *ctx)
{
        put_cpu();
}

blk_mq_alloc_request_hctx() calls __blk_mq_get_ctx() instead
of blk_mq_get_ctx(). Then reason is the "hctx" could belong to other
cpu. So blk_mq_get_ctx() doesn't work.

But then above put_cpu() in blk_mq_put_ctx() will trigger a WARNING
because we didn't do get_cpu() in blk_mq_alloc_request_hctx()

The generic code is a bit of a mess as it does the nowait optimization
in two different cases, I'll send you a separate cleanup patch for that.
