Merge branch 'writeback-workqueue' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/wq into for-3.10/core
Tejun writes: ----- This is the pull request for the earlier patchset[1] with the same name. It's only three patches (the first one was committed to workqueue tree) but the merge strategy is a bit involved due to the dependencies. * Because the conversion needs features from wq/for-3.10, block/for-3.10/core is based on rc3, and wq/for-3.10 has conflicts with rc3, I pulled mainline (rc5) into wq/for-3.10 to prevent those workqueue conflicts from flaring up in block tree. * Resolving the issue that Jan and Dave raised about debugging requires arch-wide changes. The patchset is being worked on[2] but it'll have to go through -mm after these changes show up in -next, and not included in this pull request. The three commits are located in the following git branch. git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/wq.git writeback-workqueue Pulling it into block/for-3.10/core produces a conflict in drivers/md/raid5.c between the following two commits. e3620a3ad5 ("MD RAID5: Avoid accessing gendisk or queue structs when not available") 2f6db2a707 ("raid5: use bio_reset()") The conflict is trivial - one removes an "if ()" conditional while the other removes "rbi->bi_next = NULL" right above it. We just need to remove both. The merged branch is available at git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tj/wq.git block-test-merge so that you can use it for verification. The test merge commit has proper merge description. While these changes are a bit of pain to route, they make code simpler and even have, while minute, measureable performance gain[3] even on a workload which isn't particularly favorable to showing the benefits of this conversion. ---- Fixed up the conflict. Conflicts: drivers/md/raid5.c Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
