Subject[PATCH v2] blk: fix a wrong accounting of hd_struct->in_flight
Hi, Jens, Kosaki,

Thank you for your comments.
I fixed the patch. How about it?

Thanks,

/proc/diskstats would display a strange output as follows.

$ cat /proc/diskstats |grep sda
8 0 sda 90524 7579 102154 20464 0 0 0 0 0 14096 20089

Its reason is the wrong way of accounting hd_struct->in_flight. When a bio is
merged into a request belongs to different partition by ELEVATOR_FRONT_MERGE.

The detailed root cause is as follows.

Assuming that there are two partition, sda1 and sda2.

1. A request for sda2 is in request_queue. Hence sda1's hd_struct->in_flight
is 0 and sda2's one is 1.

| hd_struct->in_flight
---------------------------
sda1 | 0
sda2 | 1
---------------------------
2. A bio belongs to sda1 is issued and is merged into the request mentioned on
step1 by ELEVATOR_BACK_MERGE. The first sector of the request is changed
from sda2 region to sda1 region. However the two partition's
hd_struct->in_flight are not changed.

| hd_struct->in_flight
---------------------------
sda1 | 0
sda2 | 1
---------------------------
3. The request is finished and blk_account_io_done() is called. In this case,
sda2's hd_struct->in_flight, not a sda1's one, is decremented.

| hd_struct->in_flight
---------------------------
sda1 | -1
sda2 | 1
---------------------------
The patch fixes the problem.
