12163 mpt_sas: Collateral damage caused by dead SATA disk
Review Request #2479 — Created Jan. 7, 2020 and submitted — Latest diff uploaded
This fixes a bug in the mpt_sas driver that could cause many disks outage after the controller reset if there is one bad SATA disk attached to the controller.
I tried to force mpt_sas resets with this fix and the massive disks outage is no longer reproducible. Also, with this fix the machine is able to boot with all disks available (except the dead one, of course).
