Subject: [PATCH 3.13 179/259] scsi: handle flush errors properly

3.13.11.6 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: James Bottomley <JBottomley@...allels.com>

commit 89fb4cd1f717a871ef79fa7debbe840e3225cd54 upstream.

Flush commands don't transfer data and thus need to be special cased
in the I/O completion handler so that we can propagate errors to
the block layer and filesystem.
