Subject[PATCHSET 1/3 blk-for-2.6.28] block: misc fixes and improvements
Date
Hello,

This patchset contains the following five patches containing misc
fixes and improvements.

0001-block-fix-partition-info-printouts.patch
0002-block-don-t-grab-block_class_lock-unnecessarily.patch
0003-block-use-class_dev_iterator-instead-of-class_for_e.patch
0004-block-allow-deleting-zero-length-partition.patch
0005-block-update-add_partition-error-handling.patch

Recent block_class iteration updates 5c6f35c5..27f3025 introduced a
few bugs and trivial user visible behavior change. 0001-0003 update
those issues and simplify related code using new class iterator.

0004 fixes deletion of zero sized partitions.

d805dda4 tried to fix error handling path in add_partition() but had a
few problems. 0005 fixes those and moves busy partition check into
add_partition().
