    [SCSI] libsas: prevent domain rediscovery competing with ata error handling · 87c8331f
    Dan Williams authored
    libata error handling provides for a timeout for link recovery.  libsas
    must not rescan for previously known devices in this interval otherwise
    it may remove a device that is simply waiting for its link to recover.
    Let libata-eh make the determination of when the link is stable and
    prevent libsas (host workqueue) from taking action while this
    determination is pending.
    
    Using a mutex (ha->disco_mutex) to flush and disable revalidation while
    eh is running requires any discovery action that may block on eh be
    moved to its own context outside the lock.  Probing ATA devices
    explicitly waits on ata-eh and the cache-flush-io issued during device
    removal may also pend awaiting eh completion.  Essentially any rphy
    add/remove activity needs to run outside the lock.
    
    This adds two new cleanup states for sas_unregister_domain_devices()
    'allocated-but-not-probed', and 'flagged-for-destruction'.  In the
    'allocated-but-not-probed' state  dev->rphy points to a rphy that is
    known to have not been through a sas_rphy_add() event.  At domain
    teardown check if this device is still pending probe and cleanup
    accordingly.  Similarly if a device has already been queued for removal
    then sas_unregister_domain_devices has nothing to do.
