This patch adds a new state SDEV_TRANSPORT_OFFLINE. It will be used by transport classes to offline devices for cases like when the fast_io_fail/recovery_tmo fires. In those cases we want all IO to fail, and we have not yet escalated to dev_loss_tmo behavior where we are removing the devices. Currently to handle this state, transport classes are setting the scsi_device's state to running, setting their internal session/port structs state to something that indicates failed, and then failing IO from some transport check in the queuecommand. The reason for the new value is so that users can distinguish between a device failure that is a result of a transport problem vs the wide range of errors that devices get offlined for when a scsi command times out and we offline the devices there. It also fixes the confusion as to why the transport class is failing IO, but has set the device state from blocked to running.
