blk_end_request() takes care of the dequeue like below,
so I think no problem.  (Please see PATCH 01)

In the case of ide-cd,
  o 'dequeue' variable is 1 only when the request is still linked
    to the queue (i.e. rq->queuelist is not empty)
  o 'dequeue' variable is 0 only when the request has already been
    removed from the queue (i.e. rq->queuelist is empty)
So blk_end_request() can handle it correctly.


If there are any drivers which don't want dequeue the queued request,
the code above would not work.
But, as far as I investigated, I have never seen such a requirement
in device drivers.

Do you think that ide may still gets a problem for the 'dequeue'?

Thanks,
