You are correct. Thanks.

Please note that we only clear the bit in hba->lrb_in_use. scsi_done is
not called for this request. Therefore, the tag is not yet free in the
block layer and next calls for queuecommand will not pass down this tag to
be used in the UFS driver. So there is no danger of a new request being

On a different note, we are debating internally on a few other changes so
until we consolidate those I will drop this patch with error injection.
