s390/dasd: Fail all requests when DASD_FLAG_ABORTIO is set
Whenever a DASD request encounters a timeout we might need to abort all outstanding requests on this or even other devices. This is especially useful if one wants to fail all devices on one side of a RAID10 configuration, even though only one device exhibited an error. To handle this I've introduced a new device flag DASD_FLAG_ABORTIO. This flag is evaluated in __dasd_process_request_queue() and will invoke blk_abort_request() for all outstanding requests with DASD_CQR_FLAGS_FAILFAST set. This will cause any of these requests to be aborted immediately if the blk_timeout function is activated. The DASD_FLAG_ABORTIO is also evaluated in __dasd_process_request_queue to abort all new request which would have the DASD_CQR_FLAGS_FAILFAST bit set. The flag can be set with the new ioctls 'BIODASDABORTIO' and removed with 'BIODASDALLOWIO'.
