    Subject[PATCHSET 2/3 blk-for-2.6.28] block: implement extended devt, take #3
    Date
    Hello, all.

    This is the third take of block-extended-devt patchset and contains
    the following 10 patches.

    0001-block-misc-updates.patch
    0002-block-make-variable-and-argument-names-more-consist.patch
    0003-block-don-t-depend-on-consecutive-minor-space.patch
    0004-block-fix-disk-part-dereferencing-race.patch
    0005-block-fix-diskstats-access.patch
    0006-block-implement-extended-dev-numbers.patch
    0007-block-adjust-formatting-for-large-minors-and-add-ex.patch
    0008-sd-ide-disk-apply-extended-minors-to-sd-and-ide.patch
    0009-block-implement-CONFIG_DEBUG_BLOCK_EXT_DEVT.patch

    0001-0002 are trivial preparation patches. 0003 implements accessors
    and applies them to insulate consecutive device number assumption and
    help fixing partition dereferencing problem. 0004-0005 fixes
    partition dereferencing bug and simplifies stats handling. 0006-0009
    implement and apply extended devt.

    Changes from the last take[L] are...

    * Adapted to blk-for-2.6.28.
    * 0005 and 0006 of the last take are collapsed into 0005.
    * Reverse iteration bug fixed.
    * blk_alloc_devt() fixed to honor first_minor when allocating from
    consecutive minor range.

    For general description of the patchset, please read description of
    the first take[F].

    This patchset is against...

    blk-for-2.6.28 (9abd7c437c02e7448fb1d2d3cfc0b9c1ab77cf2d)
    + [1] klist-dont-iterate-over-deleted-entries
    + [2] use-klist-for-class-device-list-and-implement-iterator
    + [3] block-misc-fixes-and-improvements patchset
