[dm-devel] [2.6.24 PATCH 17/25] dm crypt: add post processing queue



From: Milan Broz <mbroz redhat com>

Add post-processing queue (per crypt device) for read operations.

Current implementation uses only one queue for all operations
and this can lead to starvation caused by many requests waiting
for memory allocation. But the needed memory-releasing operation
is queued after these requests (in the same queue).
