Merge branch 'for-3.2/drivers' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block
* 'for-3.2/drivers' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block: (30 commits) virtio-blk: use ida to allocate disk index hpsa: add small delay when using PCI Power Management to reset for kump cciss: add small delay when using PCI Power Management to reset for kump xen/blkback: Fix two races in the handling of barrier requests. xen/blkback: Check for proper operation. xen/blkback: Fix the inhibition to map pages when discarding sector ranges. xen/blkback: Report VBD_WSECT (wr_sect) properly. xen/blkback: Support 'feature-barrier' aka old-style BARRIER requests. xen-blkfront: plug device number leak in xlblk_init() error path xen-blkfront: If no barrier or flush is supported, use invalid operation. xen-blkback: use kzalloc() in favor of kmalloc()+memset() xen-blkback: fixed indentation and comments xen-blkfront: fix a deadlock while handling discard response xen-blkfront: Handle discard requests. xen-blkback: Implement discard requests ('feature-discard') xen-blkfront: add BLKIF_OP_DISCARD and discard request struct drivers/block/loop.c: remove unnecessary bdev argument from loop_clr_fd() drivers/block/loop.c: emit uevent on auto release drivers/block/cpqarray.c: use pci_dev->revision loop: always allow userspace partitions and optionally support automatic scanning ... Fic up trivial header file includsion conflict in drivers/block/loop.c
