Thanks for sorting this out Tomo, all 3 patches work great!

BTW, there is one remaining (rare) leak in the allocation path.

The following patch serves to fix it but I'm not sure if there is a more
elegant way to address this.

An alternative would be to check if the page is already allocated
(before allocating the page in scsi_setup_discard_cmnd)?

Please advise, thanks.
Mike

Be sure to free the discard page if scsi_setup_blk_pc_cmnd fails.
E.g. Returning BLKPREP_DEFER from scsi_setup_blk_pc_cmnd will not cause
the request to be processed by sd_unprep_fn before the request is
retried (preparation included).
