Subject: Re: [PATCH] nvme/mpath: fix hang when disk goes live over reconnect
Date: Tue, 19 Oct 2021 09:13:09 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20211019151309.GA51473@anton-latitude> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <368499da-c117-e8b7-7b1b-46894e1e0b48@grimberg.me>

Looking into making nvme_start_ctrl capable of returning an error.
This is a bit more complicated IMHO, because the in most transports
the ctrl is already in LIVE state when nvme_start_ctrl is invoked,
so we need to bail out carefully.
