    The peek/fetch patchset is almost ready. They just need to be
    refreshed for for-2.6.30. I'm currently trying to clean up rq->data,
    ->buffer and data length handling and was thinking about putting
    peek/fetch patchset on top of those, which I don't think will be ready
    soon enough for 2.6.30 merge window. Given the nature of these
    patches, I think we can wait for 31 window?

    Thanks.
