correct me.

Hello Bean,

I'm afraid that reissuing a failed write forever could cause an infinite loop that makes e.g. user space processes unkillable or that could cause an orderly system shutdown to hang. I'm not sure that we want such behavior.

If you want to learn more about how the SCSI core handles failed writes, please have a look at scsi_decide_disposition(). A possible approach to modify the error handling behavior is to stack a dm driver on top of the SCSI core that implements the desired behavior.
