[PULL for-6.1 2/3] block/io_uring: resubmit when result is -EAGAIN


From: Stefan Hajnoczi
Subject: [PULL for-6.1 2/3] block/io_uring: resubmit when result is -EAGAIN
Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2021 17:22:38 +0100

From: Fabian Ebner <f.ebner@proxmox.com>

Linux SCSI can throw spurious -EAGAIN in some corner cases in its
completion path, which will end up being the result in the completed
io_uring request.

Resubmitting such requests should allow block jobs to complete, even
if such spurious errors are encountered.
