Subject[PATCH] block: Limit number of items taken from the I/O scheduler in one go
From
We observed that it is possible for a flush to bypass the I/O
scheduler and get added to hctx->dispatch in blk_mq_sched_bypass_insert.
This can happen while a kworker is running blk_mq_do_dispatch_sched call
in blk_mq_sched_dispatch_requests.

However, the blk_mq_do_dispatch_sched call doesn't end in bounded time.
As a result, the flush can sit there indefinitely, as the I/O scheduler
feeds an arbitrary number of requests to the hardware.

The solution is to periodically poll hctx->dispatch in
blk_mq_do_dispatch_sched, to put a bound on the latency of the commands
sitting there.
