      [PATCH] Add block_device_operations.getgeo block device method · a885c8c4
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      HDIO_GETGEO is implemented in most block drivers, and all of them have to
      duplicate the code to copy the structure to userspace, as well as getting
      the start sector.  This patch moves that to common code [1] and adds a
      ->getgeo method to fill out the raw kernel hd_geometry structure.  For many
      drivers this means ->ioctl can go away now.
      
      [1] the s390 block drivers are odd in this respect.  xpram sets ->start
          to 4 always which seems more than odd, and the dasd driver shifts
          the start offset around, probably because of it's non-standard
          sector size.

      [BLOCK] add @uptodate to end_that_request_last() and @error to rq_end_io_fn() · 8ffdc655
      Tejun Heo authored
      add @uptodate argument to end_that_request_last() and @error
      to rq_end_io_fn().  there's no generic way to pass error code
      to request completion function, making generic error handling
      of non-fs request difficult (rq->errors is driver-specific and
      each driver uses it differently).  this patch adds @uptodate
      to end_that_request_last() and @error to rq_end_io_fn().
      
      for fs requests, this doesn't really matter, so just using the
      same uptodate argument used in the last call to
      end_that_request_first() should suffice.  imho, this can also
      help the generic command-carrying request jens is working on.

      drivers/block/sx8: several minor changes · 2d5a2ae5
      Jeff Garzik authored
      * Newer hardware doesn't corrupt data when the queue depth
        is greater than one.  Rather than force the user to recompile
        with a greater queue depth, make it a module parameter.
      * update copyright date
      * add MODULE_VERSION()
      * trim trailing whitespace
      * move CARM_SG_BOUNDARY to a separate enum, since its unsigned long
      * bump to version 1.0

      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!
