Subject: [PATCH 5.1 401/405] vfio-ccw: Prevent quiesce function going into an infinite loop

[ Upstream commit d1ffa760d22aa1d8190478e5ef555c59a771db27 ]

The quiesce function calls cio_cancel_halt_clear() and if we
get an -EBUSY we go into a loop where we:
	- wait for any interrupts
	- flush all I/O in the workqueue
	- retry cio_cancel_halt_clear

During the period where we are waiting for interrupts or
flushing all I/O, the channel subsystem could have completed
a halt/clear action and turned off the corresponding activity
control bits in the subchannel status word. This means the next
time we call cio_cancel_halt_clear(), we will again start by
calling cancel subchannel and so we can be stuck between calling
cancel and halt forever.

Rather than calling cio_cancel_halt_clear() immediately after
waiting, let's try to disable the subchannel. If we succeed in
disabling the subchannel then we know nothing else can happen
with the device.
