[PATCH] blk-iolatency: fix STS_AGAIN handling

From: Dennis Zhou
Date: Fri Jul 05 2019 - 16:32:36 EST

The iolatency controller is based on rq_qos. It increments on
rq_qos_throttle() and decrements on either rq_qos_cleanup() or
rq_qos_done_bio(). a3fb01ba5af0 fixes the double accounting issue where
blk_mq_make_request() may call both rq_qos_cleanup() and
rq_qos_done_bio() on REQ_NO_WAIT. So checking STS_AGAIN prevents the
double decrement.

The above works upstream as the only way we can get STS_AGAIN is from
blk_mq_get_request() failing. The STS_AGAIN handling isn't a real
problem as bio_endio() skipping only happens on reserved tag allocation
failures which can only be caused by driver bugs and already triggers

However, the fix creates a not so great dependency on how STS_AGAIN can
be propagated. Internally, we (Facebook) carry a patch that kills read
ahead if a cgroup is io congested or a fatal signal is pending. This
combined with chained bios progagate their bi_status to the parent is
not already set can can cause the parent bio to not clean up properly
even though it was successful. This consequently leaks the inflight
counter and can hang all IOs under that blkg.

To nip the adverse interaction early, this removes the rq_qos_cleanup()
callback in iolatency in favor of cleaning up always on the
rq_qos_done_bio() path.

Fixes: a3fb01ba5af0 ("blk-iolatency: only account submitted bios")
