Subject[PATCH 4.14 61/74] scsi: qedf: Do not retry ELS request if qedf_alloc_cmd fails
From: Chad Dupuis <>

[ Upstream commit f1c43590365bac054d753d808dbbd207d09e088d ]

If we cannot allocate an ELS middlepath request, simply fail instead of
trying to delay and then reallocate. This delay logic is causing soft
lockup messages:
