    Subject[229/264] blk-flush: fix invalid BUG_ON in blk_insert_flush
    3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


    From: Jeff Moyer <>

    commit 834f9f61a525d2f6d3d0c93894e26326c8d3ceed upstream.

    A user reported a regression due to commit
    4853abaae7e4a2af938115ce9071ef8684fb7af4 (block: fix flush
    machinery for stacking drivers with differring flush flags).
    Part of the problem is that blk_insert_flush required a
    single bio be attached to the request. In reality, having
    no attached bio is also a valid case, as can be observed with
    an empty flush.
