Description Yuuichi Nagahama 2005-04-25 16:50:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Diskdump doesn't check a SCSI command return value.
Please see send_command in drivers/scsi/scsi_dump.c.

host->hostt->queuecommand(scmd, rw_intr);   <<< here >>>

while (scmd->done != NULL) {

Diskdump waits for completion of the command invoked previously
regardless of a return value of queuecommand.

SCSI driver might return busy because of a temporary failure of SCSI
driver. If SCSI driver returns busy, diskdump waits for completion
of the command permanently. So diskdump will hang up.

I think diskdump should check a return value of queuecommand.
When SCSI drive is busy, a command should be invoked again.

Version-Release number :

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
This problem happens because of external factor.
For example, temporary trouble of device.

Actual results:
dump fail

Expected results:
dump succeed
