Sure, I will have separate patch for this beautification.

Ahh, I missed to address this comment.

Currently, we have separate "bool" flag for fenced
sba_request and separate "state" variable in
sba_request. We are have merged this two things
in common "u32 flags" in sba_request. In future,
we can use more bits in "u32 flags" as required
without disturbing the sba_request.

I will make this separate patch.

I agree, I have covered many changes in PATCH1
which makes it hard for you to review.

Thanks,
Anup
