[dm-devel] [PATCHSET #upstream] block, fs: replace HARDBARRIER with FLUSH/FUA, take#2



Hello,

This patchset is combination of the following two patchsets.

 [1] block, fs: replace HARDBARRIER with FLUSH/FUA
 [2] block, dm: finish REQ_FLUSH/FUA conversion, take#2

Changes from the previous postings are

* Rebased on top of v2.6.36-rc3.

* 0010-block-implement-REQ_FLUSH-FUA-based-interface-for-FL.patch
  description updated to include why special -EOPNOTSUPP handling is
  no longer necessary as suggested by Mike Snitzer.

* 0025-dm-relax-ordering-of-bio-based-flush-implementation.patch
  description updated to include why flush_error and special error
  handling logic are no longer necessary as suggested by Mike
  Snitzer.

* 0013-block-initialize-flush-request-with-WRITE_FLUSH-inst.patch and
  0014-block-kick-queue-after-sequencing-REQ_FLUSH-FUA.patch added.
  These fixes aren't strictly required by the current users but remove
  fishy corner cases.

* 0015-block-make-sure-FSEQ_DATA-request-has-the-same-rq_di.patch
  added.  This is needed to make requested based dm work.

* 0026-dm-fix-locking-context-in-queue_io.patch added.  This fixes
  locking context problem introduced by
  0025-dm-relax-ordering-of-bio-based-flush-implementation.patch.

* Tested/Reviewed-by's added and patches reordered such that block
  layer conversion comes first followed by block driver conversions,
  filesystem conversions and then finally removal of deprecate stuff.

I think the patchset is mostly ready now although I would love to have
acked/reviewd-by's on bio-based dm conversion patches.  Jens,
Christoph, how do you guys wanna steer these patches?  I think it
would be best to go through the block tree but splitting parts and
doing cross tree pull/merges should be doable too.
