Subject: [PATCH 5.0 236/238] SUNRPC: Prevent thundering herd when the socket is not connected

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

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

From: Trond Myklebust <trond.myklebust@...merspace.com>

commit ed7dc973bd91da234d93aff6d033a5206a6c9885 upstream.

If the socket is not connected, then we want to initiate a reconnect
rather that trying to transmit requests. If there is a large number
of requests queued and waiting for the lock in call_transmit(),
then it can take a while for one of the to loop back and retake
the lock in call_connect.

Fixes: 89f90fe1ad8b ("SUNRPC: Allow calls to xprt_transmit() to drain...")
