[25/68] dm raid1: fail writes if errors are not handled and log fails

From: Greg KH

2.6.32-longterm review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Mikulas Patocka <mpatocka@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 5528d17de1cf1462f285c40ccaf8e0d0e4c64dc0 upstream.

If the mirror log fails when the handle_errors option was not selected
and there is no remaining valid mirror leg, writes return success even
though they weren't actually written to any device. This patch
completes them with EIO instead.

This code path is taken:
bio_list_merge(&ms->failures, &sync);
if (!get_valid_mirror(ms)) (false)
else if (errors_handled(ms)) (false)
else bio_endio(bio, 0);

The logic in do_failures is based on presuming that the write was already
tried: if it succeeded at least on one leg (without handle_errors) it
is reported as success.
