They might look simlar but don't have much in common actually.
I could refactor them like the attached patch, but I'm not sure
this is a correct way and this is cleaner than the current code.
(e.g. blk_execute_rq_nowait() can't be called with irqs-disabled,
 but blk_insert_request() and my blk_submit_request() can be called
 with irqs-disabled.)

So I'd leave them as it is unless you or others strongly prefer
the attached patch...
Anyway, I would like to leave the refactoring as a separate patch,
since it's not so straightforward.


> Also isn't block-exec.c a better file for this function?

blk_insert_request() is in blk-core.c and it is similar to
blk_submit_request(), so I added it to blk-core.c.
But maybe both should be in blk-exec.c.
I don't have any problem on this, I'd like to hear Jens' opinion.

Thanks,
Kiyoshi Ueda
