SubjectRe: [PATCH] nvme-pci: Shutdown when removing dead controller
Here's a failure we had which represents the issue the patch is
intended to solve:

Aug 26 15:00:56 testhost kernel: nvme nvme4: async event result 00010300
Aug 26 15:01:27 testhost kernel: nvme nvme4: controller is down; will
reset: CSTS=0x3, PCI_STATUS=0x10
Aug 26 15:02:10 testhost kernel: nvme nvme4: Device not ready; aborting reset
Aug 26 15:02:10 testhost kernel: nvme nvme4: Removing after probe
failure status: -19

The CSTS warnings comes from nvme_timeout, and is printed by
nvme_warn_reset. A reset then occurs
Controller state should be NVME_CTRL_RESETTING

Now, in nvme_reset_work, controller is never marked "CONNECTING" at:

if (!nvme_change_ctrl_state(&dev->ctrl, NVME_CTRL_CONNECTING))

because several lines above, we can determine that
nvme_pci_configure_admin_queues returns
a bad result, which triggers a goto out_unlock and prints "removing
after probe failure status: -19"

Because state is never changed to NVME_CTRL_CONNECTING or
NVME_CTRL_DELETING, the
logic added in https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commit/2036f7263d70e67d70a67899a468588cb7356bc9
should not apply. We can further validate that dev->ctrl.state ==
NVME_CTRL_RESETTING thanks to
the WARN_ON in nvme_reset_work.
