I realized there is another complication now for XGMI hive use case, we 
currently skip gpu recover for adev in case another gpu recover for 
different adev in same hive is running, under the assumption that we are 
going to reset all devices in hive anyway because that should cover our 
own dev too. But if we chose to skip now HW asic reset if our guilty job 
did finish we will aslo not HW reset any other devices in the hive even 
if one of them might actually had a bad job, wanted to do gpu recover 
but skipped it because our recover was in progress in that time.
My general idea on that is to keep a list of guilty jobs per hive, when 
you start gpu recover you first add you guilty job to the hive and 
trylock hive->reset_lock. Any owner of hive->reset_lock (gpu recovery in 
progress) once he finished his recovery and released hive->reset_lock 
should go over hive->bad_jobs_list and if at least one of them is still 
not signaled (not done) trigger another gpu recovery and so on. If you 
do manage to trylock you also go over the list, clean it and perform 
recovery. This list probably needs to be protected with per hive lock.
I also think we can for now at least finish reviewing the first 2 
patches and submit them since as I said before they are not dealing with 
this topic and fixing existing race conditions. If you are OK with that 
I can send for review the last iteration of the first 2 patches where I 
wait for the last fence in ring mirror list.
