      [SCSI] seperate max_sectors from max_hw_sectors · defd94b7
      Mike Christie authored
      - export __blk_put_request and blk_execute_rq_nowait
      needed for async REQ_BLOCK_PC requests
      - seperate max_hw_sectors and max_sectors for block/scsi_ioctl.c and
      SG_IO bio.c helpers per Jens's last comments. Since block/scsi_ioctl.c SG_IO was
      already testing against max_sectors and SCSI-ml was setting max_sectors and
      max_hw_sectors to the same value this does not change any scsi SG_IO behavior. It only
      prepares ll_rw_blk.c, scsi_ioctl.c and bio.c for when SCSI-ml begins to set
      a valid max_hw_sectors for all LLDs. Today if a LLD does not set it
      SCSI-ml sets it to a safe default and some LLDs set it to a artificial low
      value to overcome memory and feedback issues.
      Note: Since we now cap max_sectors to BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS, which is 1024,
      drivers that used to call blk_queue_max_sectors with a large value of
      max_sectors will now see the fs requests capped to BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS.

      [SCSI] Convert SCSI mid-layer to scsi_execute_async · 6e68af66
      Mike Christie authored
      Add scsi helpers to create really-large-requests and convert
      scsi-ml to scsi_execute_async().
      Per Jens's previous comments, I placed this function in scsi_lib.c.
      I made it follow all the queue's limits - I think I did at least :), so
      I removed the warning on the function header.
      I think the scsi_execute_* functions should eventually take a request_queue
      and be placed some place where the dm-multipath hw_handler can use them
      if that failover code is going to stay in the kernel. That conversion
      patch will be sent in another mail though.

      [PATCH] gfp_t: fs/* · 27496a8c
      Al Viro authored
       - ->releasepage() annotated (s/int/gfp_t), instances updated
       - missing gfp_t in fs/* added
       - fixed misannotation from the original sweep caught by bitwise checks:
         XFS used __nocast both for gfp_t and for flags used by XFS allocator.
         The latter left with unsigned int __nocast; we might want to add a
         different type for those but for now let's leave them alone.  That,
         BTW, is a case when __nocast use had been actively confusing - it had
         been used in the same code for two different and similar types, with
         no way to catch misuses.  Switch of gfp_t to bitwise had caught that
      One tricky bit is left alone to be dealt with later - mapping->flags is
      a mix of gfp_t and error indications.  Left alone for now.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
