Brian,

thank you again for the time spent reviewing this patch and for the guidance.

I did not dare to send all the changes together in the v4 so I kept
the management of the structure as last step (remember this code is
coming from 2.4 sources and it was supposed to keep the logical to
physical table in memory).

So I will send v5 very soon without the global structure and with
these last refinements you're suggesting.

I was really awaiting your comments about the many changes done and my
implementation (see macros...).

I'll comment briefly but substantially I agree with your observations.

Ok, I thought that was better than a bunch of le32_to_cpu() but
finally is just a preprocessor thing. Macro removed.

I have removed it and added and OR for the second read, then check is
if (err) as you said.

Then I have removed the cleanup and kfree'd before returning. Please check v5.
