Subject: [PATCH] 9p/rdma: do not disconnect on down_interruptible EAGAIN

From: Dominique Martinet <>

9p/rdma would sometimes drop the connection and display errors in
recv_done when the user does ^C.
The errors were IB_WC_WR_FLUSH_ERR caused by recv buffers that were
posted at the time of disconnect, and we just do not want to disconnect
when down_interruptible is... interrupted.

As a bonus, re-evaluate the log importance of post_recv() failing: we
want to see that one if it ever happens.

Signed-off-by: Dominique Martinet <>

this had actually been bugging me forever, but I couldn't test the refcount
stuff properly around flush with that so I had to finally figure it out..
