blk-mq: introduce BLK_STS_DEV_RESOURCE
This status is returned from driver to block layer if device related
resource is unavailable, but driver can guarantee that IO dispatch
will be triggered in future when the resource is available.
Convert some drivers to return BLK_STS_DEV_RESOURCE. Also, if driver
returns BLK_STS_RESOURCE and SCHED_RESTART is set, rerun queue after
a delay (BLK_MQ_DELAY_QUEUE) to avoid IO stalls. BLK_MQ_DELAY_QUEUE is
3 ms because both scsi-mq and nvmefc are using that magic value.
If a driver can make sure there is in-flight IO, it is safe to return
1) If all in-flight IOs complete before examining SCHED_RESTART in
blk_mq_dispatch_rq_list(), SCHED_RESTART must be cleared, so queue
is run immediately in this case by blk_mq_dispatch_rq_list();
2) if there is any in-flight IO after/when examining SCHED_RESTART
- if SCHED_RESTART isn't set, queue is run immediately as handled in 1)
- otherwise, this request will be dispatched after any in-flight IO is
completed via blk_mq_sched_restart()
3) if SCHED_RESTART is set concurently in context because of
BLK_STS_RESOURCE, blk_mq_delay_run_hw_queue() will cover the above two
cases and make sure IO hang can be avoided.
One invariant is that queue will be rerun if SCHED_RESTART is set.
