Subject[GIT PULL] Block driver updates for 2.6.40
Hi Linus,

After the core bits, here are the drivers bits queued up
for 2.6.40.

- DRBD update

- Support for XEN blkback, a higher performance block device backend
driver.

- cciss update

- A few good bug fixes for loop

- Rest is mostly little fixes, comment fixes, etc.


Please pull!
