[lustre-devel] [PATCH 1/2] LU-6808 ptlrpc: properly set "rq_xid" for 4MB IO

From: Fan Yong <fan.yong at intel.com>

The commit d099fdd6 replaced the "rq_xid" with "rq_mbits" as
the matchbits of bulk data transferring. To be interoperable
with old servers, it introduced the new connection flag:
OBD_CONNECT_BULK_MBITS. If the server does not support such
feature, then the "rq_xid" would be set the same value as
"rq_mbits". Unfortunately, it forgot to handle multiple bulk
operations, for example 4MB IO. If the new client wants to
make 4MB IO with old server, it may send a small "rq_xid" to
the old server, as to the old server will regard it as an 1MB
IO or 2MB IO. So the data transfer will not complete because
of only part of data transferred. Then the client will timeout
failure and retry again and again.
