Looks good, thanks. Feel free to add my

Acked-by: Bjorn Helgaas <bhelgaas@google.com> [drivers/pci/switch/switchtec]

to the https://lab.nexedi.com/kirr/linux/commit/edaeb4101860 patch.

It looks like maybe the commit log could use

s/and the reset were/and the rest were/

It also mentions "the previous patch" a couple times, which may lose
some of its meaning depending on how things get merged into git. If
that previous patch has already been merged, a SHA1 reference would be
more specific.

I would personally split that into two patches: one to avoid the
potential deadlocks and a second to do the "safe to change to
stream_open" changes. It seems like the first is more serious and
urgent while the second is more of a cleanup. Then you could
streamline the commit logs by including a single diagnostic and
omitting the entire list of files.

But that's all bike-shedding and I'm totally fine with this as-is.

Bjorn
