The current UFS error handling approach requires the following code in
ufshcd_queuecommand():

if (hba->pm_op_in_progress) {
hba->force_reset = true;
set_host_byte(cmd, DID_BAD_TARGET);
cmd->scsi_done(cmd);
goto out;
}

Removing that code is not possible with the current error handling
approach. My patch makes it possible to remove that code.

UFS power state transitions happen by submitting a SCSI command to a
WLUN. The SCSI error handler is only activated after all outstanding
SCSI commands for a SCSI host have failed or completed. I think this
guarantees for the UFS driver that eh_strategy_handler is not invoked
while a command submitted to a WLUN is changing the power state of the
UFS device. The following code from scsi_error.c only wakes up the error
handler if (shost->host_failed || shost->host_eh_scheduled) &&
shost->host_failed == scsi_host_busy(shost):

if ((shost->host_failed == 0 && shost->host_eh_scheduled == 0)
|| shost->host_failed != scsi_host_busy(shost)) {
schedule();
continue;
}
/* Handle SCSI errors */

Thanks,

Bart.
