If that is the case, blk_mq_hctx_drain_inflight_rqs() will wait for
completion of this request.

The only chance it is missed is that the last CPU of this hctx becomes
offline just when this request stays in request list after it is
retried from EH.

You can add the following debug message, then reproduce the issue and
see if the debug log is dumped.

diff --git a/block/blk-mq.c b/block/blk-mq.c

 		return WORK_CPU_UNBOUND;
 	}
