Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH 14/14] barriers



Hi Mikulas,

Sorry for my less explanation.

Yes, I know that.
But the Milan's patch (http://marc.info/?l=dm-devel&m=123695241224620&w=2)
changed around dec_pending() in dm.c and it has already been merged into
2.6.29 (after 2.6.29-rc8).
Your patch conflicts against the change and is rejected, when I try to
apply your whole patch-set on top of 2.6.29.

The conflict may be just cosmetic reasons, but I'm not sure.
So I noticed that to you, so that I can review this patch correctly
for my request-based dm work.

Thanks,
Kiyoshi Ueda
