SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] AIO: Fix reference counting in io_cancel and aio_cancel_all

Hi, Sergey,

Thanks for the patch. Would you mind resubmitting it to make it a bit
easier to review? The way you've done things, it is difficult to tell
if you just moved the aio_cancel_all function or if you moved it and
made changes. Please have the patch that moves it separated out from
other changes, or at least mention in the changelog that the function
was unchanged. Next, if you could tell what sorts of testing you've
performed, that would be great. Finally, it would be a good idea to CC
linux-aio@kvack.org on aio patches.

Thanks!
Jeff
