    Subject[RFC PATCHSET linux-2.6-block#for-2.6.31] block: lld cleanup patches
    Date
    Hello,

    This is a RFC patchset. Please do NOT pull directly from the git
    tree.

    This patchset contains block lld cleanups and is consisted of the
    following 12 patches.

    0001-block-update-end_cur.patch
    0002-block-don-t-init-rq-fields-unnecessarily.patch
    0003-amiflop-ataflop-xd-mg_disk-clean-up-unnecessary-stu.patch
    0004-ps3disk-simplify-request-completion.patch
    0005-sunvdc-kill-vdc_end_request.patch
    0006-ubd-cleanup-completion-path.patch
    0007-ubd-drop-unnecessary-rq-sector-manipulation.patch
    0008-hd-clean-up-request-completion-paths.patch
    0009-swim3-clean-up-request-completion-paths.patch
    0010-swim-clean-up-request-completion-paths.patch
    0011-mg_disk-fold-mg_disk.h-into-mg_disk.c.patch
    0012-mg_disk-clean-up-request-completion-paths.patch

    0001 fixes a stupid mistake while implementing blk_request_end_cur()
    and 0002 and 0003 are pretty straight forward cleanup. Please feel
    free to apply these three patches.

    0004-0012 are cleanup patches for various block low level drivers
    mostly focusing on completion paths. The biggest change is use of
    standard block layer mechanisms for partial completion instead of
    doing it by manipulating request directly. All the touched drivers
    are only compile tested.

    I'm planning on testing hd, xd and um but can't test others. Can you
    guys please verify the following drivers work?

    ps3disk, sunvdc, swim3, swim and mg_disk.

    The following git tree can be used for testing.

    git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/misc.git rfc-block-lld-cleanup

    Thanks.
