[Drbd-dev] [PATCH 04/17] drbd: Send P_NEG_ACK upon write error in protocol != C

From: Lars Ellenberg <lars.ellenberg at linbit.com>

In protocol != C, we forgot to send the P_NEG_ACK for failing writes.

Once we no longer submit to local disk, because we already "detached",
due to the typical "on-io-error detach;" config setting,
we already send the neg acks right away.

Only those requests that have been submitted,
and have been error-completed by the local disk,
would forget to send the neg-ack,
and only in asynchronous replication (protocol != C).
Unless this happened during resync,
where we already always send acks, regardless of protocol.

The primary side needs the P_NEG_ACK in order to mark
the affected block(s) for resync in its out-of-sync bitmap.

If the blocks in question are not re-written again,
we may miss to resync them later, causing data inconsistencies.

This patch will always send the neg-acks, and also at least try to
persist the out-of-sync status on the local node already.
