Subject[PATCH 00/16] raid acceleration and asynchronous offload api for 2.6.22
I am pleased to release this latest spin of the raid acceleration
patches for merge consideration. This release aims to address all
pending review items including MD bug fixes and async_tx api changes
from Neil, and concerns on channel management from Chris and others.

Data integrity tests using home grown scripts and 'iozone -V' are
passing. I am open to suggestions for additional testing criteria. I
have also verified that git bisect is not broken by this set.

The short log below highlights the most recent changes. The patches
will be sent as a reply to this message, and they are also available via

git pull git:// md-accel-linus

Additional comments and feedback welcome.


01/16: dmaengine: add base support for the async_tx api
* convert channel capabilities to a 'cpumask_t like' bitmap
02/16: dmaengine: move channel management to the client
* this patch is new to this series
03/16: ARM: Add drivers/dma to arch/arm/Kconfig
04/16: dmaengine: add the async_tx api
* remove the per operation type list, and distribute operation
capabilities evenly amongst the available channels
* simplify async_tx_find_channel to optimize the fast path
05/16: md: add raid5_run_ops and support routines
* explicitly handle the 2-disk raid5 case (xor becomes memcpy)
* fix race between async engines and bi_end_io call for reads,
Neil Brown

06/16: md: use raid5_run_ops for stripe cache operations
07/16: md: move write operations to raid5_run_ops
* remove test_and_set/test_and_clear BUG_ONs, Neil Brown
08/16: md: move raid5 compute block operations to raid5_run_ops
