    I can't apply this while I think it looks horribly broken.

    Your patch makes scsi_lib call blk_queue_end_tag() without holding the
    queue spinlock.

    Which looks horribly broken, since it _will_ corrupt the queues.

    In fact, it looks about a million times more broken than the code that
    Martin submitted.

    Please explain to me why I am wrong.


    PS. I actually do tend to look as the patches I apply. Right now it looks
    like you're wrong, and Martin is right.
