SubjectRE: [PATCH 1/2] block: Move general unplug callback function from md/raid to blk-core
If you ever tried to implement unplug function in umem, you would find the code was almost identical as in dm/raid driver.
For other components which also need such unplug mechanism, it will much more convenient to have such facilities.
PS: What's your specific concern about blk_plug_cb handles each request_queue?

Thanks,
-Tao
