The patch series introduces zone write plugging (ZWP) as the new
mechanism to control the ordering of writes to zoned block devices.
ZWP replaces zone write locking (ZWL) which is implemented only by
mq-deadline today. ZWP also allows emulating zone append operations
using regular writes for zoned devices that do not natively support this
operation (e.g. SMR HDDs). This patch series removes the scsi disk
driver and device mapper zone append emulation to use ZWP emulation.

How are SCSI unit attention conditions handled?

???? How does that have anything to do with this series ?
Whatever SCSI sd is doing with unit attention conditions remains the same. I did
not touch that.

I wrote my question before I had realized that this patch series
restricts the number of outstanding writes to one per zone. Hence,
there is no risk of unaligned write pointer errors due to reordering
of writes due to unit attention conditions. Hence, my question can
be ignored :-)
