Hi Greg,

I have generated the two patches following what Bartlomiej suggested.
The first one is the _main_ patch against Linus' kernel tree
(tag v2.6.30-rc8) and the second one is an _incremental patch
accounting for the block layer API update in linux-next tree.
I'll send both of them to you later.
