[SCSI] Add 'eh_deadline' to limit SCSI EH runtime
This patchs adds an 'eh_deadline' sysfs attribute to the scsi host which limits the overall runtime of the SCSI EH. The 'eh_deadline' value is stored in the now obsolete field 'resetting'. When a command is failed the start time of the EH is stored in 'last_reset'. If the overall runtime of the SCSI EH is longer than last_reset + eh_deadline, the EH is short-circuited and falls through to issue a host reset only. [jejb: add comments in Scsi_Host about new fields] Signed-off-by: Hannes Reinecke <hare@suse.de> Signed-off-by: James Bottomley <JBottomley@Parallels.com>
