    SubjectRe: [PATCH] block: push down BKL into .locked_ioctl

    No, the open and release methods in struct block_device_operations.
    After this the driver API for block devices is BKL free, which
    is an important step. To get there the locking in blkdev_get/put
    needs to be sorted out first, though.

    The ioctl pushdown patch looks good to me, btw.
