Subject[PATCH] Block layer: separate out queue-oriented ioctls
From: James Bottomley <James.Bottomley@SteelEye.com>

This patch (as854) separates out the two queue-oriented ioctls from
the rest of the block-layer ioctls. The idea is that they should
apply to any driver using a request_queue, even if the driver doesn't
implement a block-device interface. The prototypical example is the
sg driver, to which the patch adds the new interface.

This will make it possible for cdrecord and related programs to
retrieve reliably the max_sectors value, regardless of whether the
user points it to an sr or an sg device. In particular, this will
resolve Bugzilla entry #7026.

Signed-off-by: Alan Stern <stern@rowland.harvard.edu>

Jens:

James said that he feels you should be be the person to accept this
patch, since it affects the block layer. Please merge it and send it
on up the hierarchy.
