    My idea was that the patch in its current form would be less
    controversial if it can't break anything, but you're certainly
    right that the description doesn't match what the patch does.

    I'm now integrating the half of patch 5, as you suggested.
    I would much appreciate if you could verify my assumptions
    about the blkdev_get/blkdev_put functions in the combined patch.
