Hi Ming,

There is only one function that changes the device state into SDEV_CANCEL,
namely __scsi_remove_device(). I think that in the SDEV_CANCEL state all
newly queued requests should be ignored except the SYNCHRONIZE CACHE and
STOP commands submitted by sd_shutdown(). More information about the SCSI
device states is available in the commit message of 9b22a8fb0edd ("Updated
state model for SCSI devices").
