SubjectRe: [PATCH 2/6] nvme-pci: fix the freeze and quiesce for shutdown and reset case
Hi Keith

Thanks for your kindly response.

There are only two difference with this patch from the original one.
1. Don't freeze the queue for the reset case. At the moment, the outstanding requests will be requeued back to blk-mq queues.
The new entered requests during reset will also stay in blk-mq queues. All this requests will not enter into nvme driver layer
due to quiescent request_queues. And they will be issued after the reset is completed successfully.
2. Drain the request queue before nvme_dev_disable. This is nearly same with the previous rule which will also unquiesce the queue
and let the requests be able to be drained. The only difference is this patch will invoke wait_freeze in nvme_dev_disable instead
of nvme_reset_work.

We don't sacrifice any request. This patch do the same thing with the previous one and make things clearer.
