SubjectRe: [PATCH 23/32] ide-tape: struct idetape_tape_t: shorten member names

Could you factor out dead code removal to a separate (pre-)patch?

Even if this patch contains only trivial changes, the amount of them
and the fact that it intermixes different logical changes (shortening
names, dead code removal and comments beautification) makes it somehow
non-trivial to review.

General comment:
please have some mercy on the reviewer (in this case me ;) and spread
the changes across more patches (it should also be easier for you since
with more patches it is more likely that the more changes get applied
the first time and you will have less code to recast/resubmit).

hmm, this comment looks ugly now because of an extra long first line...

it is not worth doing it for the sake of two characters saved,
(especially when we take into the account that both variables are
removed by patch #26)

'first_frame' would be more appropriate

this one is write-only, can be removed

this change belongs to patch #21

how's about blk_size?

active_data_rq?

not worth it

there is also 'first_stage' so the above comment seems valueable

'lock' or 'queue_lock' would be more appropriate

please don't use uint and ulong typedefs

all of the above renames seem to be not worth it

the reason is that this change sets the number of people who understand (at
least partially) pipelined operation from to near to zero to a definitive zero

ditto

minor CodingStyle issue:

(void)ide_do_drive_cmd(drive, tape->act_data_rq,
ide_end);

CodingStyle

mtget.mt_dsreg =
((tape->blk_sz * tape->user_bs_factor)
<< MT_ST_BLKSIZE_SHIFT) & MT_ST_BLKSIZE_MASK;

or some other better way...

'vendor_id' and 'product_id' can also be converted to local variables

ulong -> unsigned long

Please recast/resubmit.
