Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.15 123/124] tcmu: release blocks for partially setup cmds
From: Mike Christie <>

[ Upstream commit 810b8153c4243d2012a6ec002ddd3bbc9a9ae8c2 ]

If we cannot setup a cmd because we run out of ring space
or global pages release the blocks before sleeping. This
prevents a deadlock where dev0 has waiting_blocks set and
needs N blocks, but dev1 to devX have each allocated N / X blocks
and also hit the global block limit so they went to sleep.

find_free_blocks is not able to take the sleeping dev's
blocks becaause their waiting_blocks is set and even
if it was not the block returned by find_last_bit could equal
dbi_max. The latter will probably never happen because
DATA_BLOCK_BITS is so high but in the next patches
it might be lower and could happen.
