Hi Jens

Please consider this patchset for 4.21.

It refactors the code of issue request directly to unify the interface
and make the code clearer and more readable.

This patch set is rebased on the recent for-4.21/block and add the 1st
patch which inserts the non-read-write request to hctx dispatch
list to avoid to involve merge and io scheduler when bypass_insert
is true, otherwise, inserting is ignored, BLK_STS_RESOURCE is returned
and the caller will fail forever.

The 2nd patch refactors the code of issue request directly to unify the
helper interface which could handle all the cases.

The 3rd patch make blk_mq_sched_insert_requests issue requests directly
with 'bypass' false, then it needn't to handle the non-issued requests
any more.

The 4th patch replace and kill the blk_mq_request_issue_directly.

V10:
 - address Jen's comment.
 - let blk_mq_try_issue_directly return actual result for case
   'bypass == false'. (2/4)
 - use return value of blk_mq_try_issue_directly to identify
   whether the request is direct-issued successfully. (3/4)

V9:
 - rebase on recent for-4.21/block
 - add 1st patch

V8:
 - drop the original 2nd patch which try to insert requests into hctx->dispatch
   if quiesced or stopped.
 - remove two wrong 'unlikely'

V7:
 - drop the original 3rd patch which try to ensure hctx to be ran on
   its mapped cpu in issueing directly path.

V6:
 - drop original 1st patch to address Jen's comment
 - discard the enum mq_issue_decision and blk_mq_make_decision and use
   BLK_STS_* return values directly to address Jen's comment. (1/5)
 - add 'unlikely' in blk_mq_try_issue_directly (1/5)
 - refactor the 2nd and 3rd patch based on the new 1st patch.
 - reserve the unused_cookie in 4th and 5th patch

V5:
 - rebase against Jens' for-4.21/block branch
 - adjust the order of patch04 and patch05
 - add patch06 to replace and kill the one line blk_mq_request_bypass_insert
 - comment changes

V4:
 - split the original patch 1 into two patches, 1st and 2nd patch currently
 - rename the mq_decision to mq_issue_decision
 - comment changes

V3:
 - Correct the code about the case bypass_insert is true and io scheduler
   attached. The request still need to be issued in case above. (1/4)
 - Refactor the code to make code clearer. blk_mq_make_request is introduced
   to decide insert, end or just return based on the return value of .queue_rq
   and bypass_insert (1/4) 
 - Add the 2nd patch. It introduce a new decision result which indicates to
   insert request with blk_mq_request_bypass_insert.
 - Modify the code to adapt the new patch 1.

V2:
 - Add 1st and 2nd patch to refactor the code.

We don't allow direct dispatch of anything but regular reads/writes
and insert all of non-read-write requests. However, this is not
correct for 'bypass_insert == true' case where inserting is ignored
and BLK_STS_RESOURCE is returned. The caller will fail forever.

Fix it with inserting the non-read-write request to hctx dispatch
list to avoid to involve merge and io scheduler when bypass_insert
is true.

Merge blk_mq_try_issue_directly and __blk_mq_try_issue_directly
into one interface to unify the interfaces to issue requests
directly. The merged interface takes over the requests totally,
it could insert, end or do nothing based on the return value of
.queue_rq and 'bypass' parameter. Then caller needn't any other
handling any more and then code could be cleaned up.

It is not necessary to issue request directly with bypass 'true'
in blk_mq_sched_insert_requests and handle the non-issued requests
itself. Just set bypass to 'false' and let blk_mq_try_issue_directly
handle them totally. Remove the blk_rq_can_direct_dispatch check,
because blk_mq_try_issue_directly can handle it well.

With respect to commit_rqs hook, we only need to care about the last
request's result. If it is inserted, invoke commit_rqs.

I don't think there's anything wrong, functionally, with this patch,
but I question the logic of continuing to attempt direct dispatch
if we fail one. If we get busy on one, for instance, we should just
insert that one to the dispatch list, and insert the rest of the list
normally.

It is OK for me to stop to attempt direct dispatch and insert all of the
rest when meet the non-ok case.

Thanks

Great, let's do that then, I think that makes more sense. The usual case
of not being able to dispatch is resource limited, and for that case
we'd just be wasting our time continuing to attempt direct dispatch.
