Be careful printing errors per-IO; you could get thousands of them if things go bad.
The block layer print_req_error() uses printk_ratelimited(KERN_ERR) for that reason,
and the SCSI layer scsi_io_completion_action() maintains a ratelimit on its own.

The dev_err_ratelimited() macro might be a good fit here.
