blk_stop_queue - stop a queue
2. SYNOPSIS ▲
void blk_stop_queue(struct request_queue * q );
3. ARGUMENTS ▲
The struct request_queue in question
4. DESCRIPTION ▲
The Linux block layer assumes that a block driver will consume all entries on the request queue when the request_fn strategy is called. Often this will not happen, because of hardware limitations (queue depth settings). If a device driver gets a Aqqueue fullAq response, or if it simply chooses not to queue more I/O at one point, it can call this function to prevent the request_fn from being called until the driver has signalled itAqs ready to go again. This happens by calling blk_start_queue to restart queue operations. Queue lock must be held.
