Subject: [PATCH] SCSI: delay run queue if device is blocked in scsi_dev_queue_ready()

Before commit 0df21c86bdbf ("scsi: implement .get_budget and .put_budget
for blk-mq"), we run queue after 3ms if device is blocked and queue is
idle, which is done in handling BLK_STS_RESOURCE. After commit 0df21c86bdbf
is introduced, queue won't be run any more under this situation.

IO hang is observed when timeout happened, and this patch fixes the IO
hang issue by running queue after delay in scsi_dev_queue_ready, just like

This issue can be triggered by the following script:

	rmmod scsi_debug
	modprobe scsi_debug max_queue=1

	DEVICE=`ls -d /sys/bus/pseudo/drivers/scsi_debug/adapter*/host*/target*/*/block/* | head -1 | xargs basename`

	DISK_DIR=`ls -d /sys/block/$DEVICE/device/scsi_disk/*`

	echo "using scsi device $DEVICE"
	echo "-1" >/sys/bus/pseudo/drivers/scsi_debug/every_nth
	echo starting loop $i
	echo "temporary write through" >$DISK_DIR/cache_type
	echo "128" >/sys/bus/pseudo/drivers/scsi_debug/opts
	echo none > /sys/block/$DEVICE/queue/scheduler
	dd if=/dev/$DEVICE of=/dev/null bs=1M iflag=direct count=1 &
	sleep 5
	echo "0" >/sys/bus/pseudo/drivers/scsi_debug/opts
	echo "SUCCESS"

Fixes: 0df21c86bdbf ("scsi: implement .get_budget and .put_budget for blk-mq")
