    Merge branch 'for-4.8/core' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block · d05d7f40
    Linus Torvalds authored
    Pull core block updates from Jens Axboe:
       - the big change is the cleanup from Mike Christie, cleaning up our
         uses of command types and modified flags.  This is what will throw
         some merge conflicts
       - regression fix for the above for btrfs, from Vincent
       - following up to the above, better packing of struct request from
       - a 2038 fix for blktrace from Arnd
       - a few trivial/spelling fixes from Bart Van Assche
       - a front merge check fix from Damien, which could cause issues on
         SMR drives
       - Atari partition fix from Gabriel
       - convert cfq to highres timers, since jiffies isn't granular enough
         for some devices these days.  From Jan and Jeff
       - CFQ priority boost fix idle classes, from me
       - cleanup series from Ming, improving our bio/bvec iteration
       - a direct issue fix for blk-mq from Omar
       - fix for plug merging not involving the IO scheduler, like we do for
         other types of merges.  From Tahsin
       - expose DAX type internally and through sysfs.  From Toshi and Yigal
