scsi,block: update SCSI to handle mixed merge failures
Tejun Heo [Fri, 11 Sep 2009 12:26:40 +0000 (14:26 +0200)]
Update scsi_io_completion() such that it only fails requests till the
next error boundary and retry the leftover.  This enables block layer
to merge requests with different failfast settings and still behave
correctly on errors.  Allow merge of requests of different failfast
settings.

As SCSI is currently the only subsystem which follows failfast status,
there's no need to worry about other block drivers for now.
