Mike Snitzer - Dec. 7, 2010, 11:16 p.m.
From: Hannes Reinecke <hare@suse.de>

Instead of just passing 'EIO' for any I/O error we should be
notifying the upper layers with more details about the cause
of this error.

Update the possible I/O errors to:

- ENOLINK: Link failure between host and target
- EIO: Retryable I/O error
- EREMOTEIO: Non-retryable I/O error

'Retryable' in this context means that an I/O error _might_ be
restricted to the I_T_L nexus (vulgo: path), so retrying on another
nexus / path might succeed.

'Non-retryable' means target failure or reservation conflict.
