    Subject[PATCH 00/16] raid acceleration and asynchronous offload api for 2.6.22
    I am pleased to release this latest spin of the raid acceleration
    patches for merge consideration. This release aims to address all
    pending review items including MD bug fixes and async_tx api changes
    from Neil, and concerns on channel management from Chris and others.

    Data integrity tests using home grown scripts and 'iozone -V' are
    passing. I am open to suggestions for additional testing criteria. I
    have also verified that git bisect is not broken by this set.

    The short log below highlights the most recent changes. The patches
    will be sent as a reply to this message, and they are also available via

    git pull git:// md-accel-linus

    Additional comments and feedback welcome.


    01/16: dmaengine: add base support for the async_tx api
    * convert channel capabilities to a 'cpumask_t like' bitmap
    02/16: dmaengine: move channel management to the client
    * this patch is new to this series
    03/16: ARM: Add drivers/dma to arch/arm/Kconfig
    04/16: dmaengine: add the async_tx api
    * remove the per operation type list, and distribute operation
    capabilities evenly amongst the available channels
    * simplify async_tx_find_channel to optimize the fast path
    05/16: md: add raid5_run_ops and support routines
    * explicitly handle the 2-disk raid5 case (xor becomes memcpy)
    * fix race between async engines and bi_end_io call for reads,
    Neil Brown
    * remove unnecessary spin_lock from ops_complete_biofill
    * remove test_and_set/test_and_clear BUG_ONs, Neil Brown
    * remove explicit interrupt handling, Neil Brown
    06/16: md: use raid5_run_ops for stripe cache operations
    07/16: md: move write operations to raid5_run_ops
    * remove test_and_set/test_and_clear BUG_ONs, Neil Brown
    08/16: md: move raid5 compute block operations to raid5_run_ops
    * remove the req_compute BUG_ON
    09/16: md: move raid5 parity checks to raid5_run_ops
    * remove test_and_set/test_and_clear BUG_ONs, Neil Brown
    10/16: md: satisfy raid5 read requests via raid5_run_ops
    * cleanup to_read and to_fill accounting
    * do not fail reads that have reached the cache
    11/16: md: use async_tx and raid5_run_ops for raid5 expansion operations
    12/16: md: move raid5 io requests to raid5_run_ops
    13/16: md: remove raid5 compute_block and compute_parity5
    14/16: dmaengine: driver for the iop32x, iop33x, and iop13xx raid engines
    * fix locking bug in iop_adma_alloc_chan_resources, Benjamin
    * convert capabilities over to dma_cap_mask_t
    15/16: iop13xx: Surface the iop13xx adma units to the iop-adma driver
    16/16: iop3xx: Surface the iop3xx DMA and AAU units to the iop-adma driver
