Subject: [PATCH] nvme-multipath: fix deadlock between ana_work and scan_work
commit 489dd102a2c7c94d783a35f9412eb085b8da1aa4 upstream.
When scan_work calls nvme_mpath_add_disk() this holds ana_lock
and invokes nvme_parse_ana_log(), which may issue IO
in device_add_disk() and hang waiting for an accessible path.
While nvme_mpath_set_live() only called when nvme_state_is_live(),
a transition may cause NVME_SC_ANA_TRANSITION and requeue the IO.
In order to recover and complete the IO ana_work on the same ctrl
should be able to update the path state and remove NVME_NS_ANA_PENDING.
The deadlock occurs because scan_work keeps holding ana_lock,
so ana_work hangs [1].
Now nvme_mpath_add_disk() uses nvme_parse_ana_log() to obtain a copy
of the ANA group desc, and then calls nvme_update_ns_ana_state() without
holding ana_lock.
