No, what you're proposing is quite different.

By "enter", I'm referring to blk_queue_enter. Once a request enters
into an hctx, it can not be backed out to re-enter a new hctx if the
original one is invalidated.

Prior to a reset, all requests that have entered the queue are committed
to that hctx, and we can't do anything about that. The only thing we can
do is prevent new requests from entering until we're sure that hctx is
valid on the other side of the reset.
