Series nvme: improve error handling and ana_state to work well with dm-multipath | expand

Commit Message

Mike Snitzer April 16, 2021, 11:53 p.m. UTC
REQ_FAILFAST_TRANSPORT is set by upper layer software that handles
multipathing. Unlike SCSI, NVMe's error handling was specifically
designed to handle local retry for non-path errors. As such, allow
NVMe's local retry mechanism to be used for requests marked with
REQ_FAILFAST_TRANSPORT.

In this way, the mechanism of NVMe multipath or other multipath are
now equivalent. The mechanism is: non path related error will be
retried locally, path related error is handled by multipath.

Also, introduce FAILUP handling for REQ_FAILFAST_TRANSPORT. Update
NVMe to allow failover of requests marked with either REQ_NVME_MPATH
or REQ_FAILFAST_TRANSPORT. This allows such requests to be given a
disposition of either FAILOVER or FAILUP respectively.

nvme_complete_rq() is updated to call nvme_failup_req() if
nvme_decide_disposition() returns FAILUP. nvme_failup_req() ensures
the request is completed with a retryable path error.
