Revert "rxrpc: Allow failed client calls to be retried"
The changes introduced to allow rxrpc calls to be retried creates an issue when it comes to refcounting afs_call structs. The problem is that when rxrpc_send_data() queues the last packet for an asynchronous call, the following sequence can occur: (1) The notify_end_tx callback is invoked which causes the state in the afs_call to be changed from AFS_CALL_CL_REQUESTING or AFS_CALL_SV_REPLYING. (2) afs_deliver_to_call() can then process event notifications from rxrpc on the async_work queue. (3) Delivery of events, such as an abort from the server, can cause the afs_call state to be changed to AFS_CALL_COMPLETE on async_work. (4) For an asynchronous call, afs_process_async_call() notes that the call is complete and tried to clean up all the refs on async_work. (5) rxrpc_send_data() might return the amount of data transferred (success) or an error - which could in turn reflect a local error or a received error. Synchronising the clean up after rxrpc_kernel_send_data() returns an error with the asynchronous cleanup is then tricky to get right. Mostly revert commit c038a58c . The two API functions the original commit added aren't currently used. This makes rxrpc_kernel_send_data() always return successfully if it queued the data it was given. Note that this doesn't affect synchronous calls since their Rx notification function merely pokes a wait queue and does not refcounting. The asynchronous call notification function *has* to do refcounting and pass a ref over the work item to avoid the need to sync the workqueue in call cleanup.
