By the way, wouldn't blk_run_queue() be more appropriate here? It looks
to me as if blk_run_queue() was the thing intended for general usage by
low level drivers who don't know and care about schedulers, whereas the
usage of __generic_unplug_device() should mostly be restricted to the
block layer. On the other hand, there are other drivers in
drivers/block/ that use __generic_unplug_device(), so I may well be
wrong. Jens?

Regards,

Elias
