I have no problems with your patch, I would just like a revised patch
that removes blkdev_scsi_issue_flush_fn completely instead since it is
totally unused. It doesn't make sense to remove the export and make it
static, since it isn't used internally (and never meant to, it's a
helper function for drivers).
