Your patch looks good to me.

I have the same idea before but I found that calling scsi_done() (by
__ufshcd_transfer_req_compl()) in ufshcd_abort() in old kernel (e.g.,
4.14) will cause issues but it has been resolved by introduced
SCMD_STATE_COMPLETE flag in newer kernel. So your patch makes sense.

Would you mind sending out this draft patch as a formal patch together
with my patch to fix issues in ufshcd_abort()? Our patches are aimed to
fix cases that host/device reset eventually not being triggered by the
result of ufshcd_abort(), for example, command is aborted successfully
or command is not pending in device with its doorbell also cleared.

Thanks,
Stanley Chu
