      [SCSI] sd: Fix refcounting · 39b7f1e2
      Alan Stern authored
      Currently the driver takes a reference only for requests coming by way
      of the gendisk, not for requests coming by way of the struct device or
      struct scsi_device.  Such requests can arrive in the rescan, flush,
      and shutdown pathways.
      The patch also makes the scsi_disk keep a reference to the underlying
      scsi_device, and it erases the scsi_device's pointer to the scsi_disk
      when the scsi_device is removed (since the pointer should no longer be
      This resolves Bugzilla entry #5237.

      [SCSI] sd: pause in sd_spinup_disk for slow USB devices · 4451e472
      Alan Stern authored
      This patch adds a delay tailored for USB flash devices that are slow to
      initialize their firmware.  The symptom is a repeated Unit Attention with
      ASC=0x28 (Not Ready to Ready transition).  The patch will wait for up to 5
      seconds for such devices to become ready.  Normal devices won't send the
      repeated Unit Attention sense key and hence won't trigger the patch.
      This fixes a problem with James Roberts-Thomson's USB device, and I've
      seen several reports of other devices exhibiting the same symptoms --
      presumably they will be helped as well.

      [SCSI] TYPE_RBC cache fixes (sbp2.c affected) · 631e8a13
      Al Viro authored
      	a) TYPE_SDAD renamed to TYPE_RBC and taken to scsi.h
      	b) in sbp2.c remapping of TYPE_RPB to TYPE_DISK turned off
      	c) relevant places in midlayer and sd.c taught to accept TYPE_RBC
      	d) sd.c::sd_read_cache_type() looks into page 6 when dealing with
      TYPE_RBC - these guys have writeback cache flag there and are not guaranteed
      to have page 8 at all.
      	e) sd_read_cache_type() got an extra sanity check - it checks that
      it got the page it asked for before using its contents.  And screams if
      mismatch had happened.  Rationale: there are broken devices out there that
      are "helpful" enough to go for "I don't have a page you've asked for, here,
      have another one".  For example, PL3507 had been caught doing just that...
      	f) sbp2 sets sdev->use_10_for_rw and sdev->use_10_for_ms instead
      of bothering to remap READ6/WRITE6/MOD_SENSE, so most of the conversions
      in there are gone now.
      	Incidentally, I wonder if USB storage devices that have no
      mode page 8 are simply RBC ones.  I haven't touched that, but it might
      be interesting to check...

      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!
