Subject: [PATCH] SUNRPC: Fix congestion window race with disconnect
Date: Fri, 13 Sep 2019 16:01:07 -0400
Message-ID: <> (raw)

If the congestion window closes just as the transport disconnects,
a reconnect is never driven because:

1. The XPRT_CONG_WAIT flag prevents tasks from taking the write lock
2. There's no wake-up of the first task on the xprt->sending queue

To address this, clear the congestion wait flag as part of
completing a disconnect.

Fixes: 75891f502f5f ("SUNRPC: Support for congestion control ... ")
