I find confusing to mix the semantics of b_blocknr with b_rsector,
they've different meanings, I'd prefer if you would recall
submit_bh_rsector directly, rather than adding a submit_bh_blknr. You
can implement submit_bh_rsector extern for buffer.c and inline for
ll_rw_block, so submit_bh remains fast and you still avoid code
duplication.

I don't think you need to initialize this bit in any fast path,
initializing it in raw_open for the preallocated iobuf, and after the
alloc_kiovec of the slow path of rw_raw_dev should be enough.

how big is this kmalloc (dunno on top of my head, depends on .dev_max)?
The only thing we must make sure is that insmod sd.c won't fail because
of fragmentation (in such case either make it static [so it will be in
the module vmalloced space automatically] or use vmalloc instead).

This updated patch looked much better btw :).
