[PATCH 2/3] [tgt]: Add bs_sg struct device_type_template sg_template and struct backingstore_template->bs_init()
From: Nicholas Bellinger <nab(a)> This patch adds struct device_type_template sg_template to usr/bs_sg.c used for STGT LUN passthrough with the new bs_sg_lu_init() and bs_sg_rw() functions following usr/sbc.c code for TYPE_DISK, but should work for any device type. It also adds struct bs_sg_init() ... 7 Jun 2010 00:57
[PATCH 3/3] [tgt]: Add BSG v4 backstore support to usr/bs_sg.c
From: Nicholas Bellinger <nab(a)> This patch adds initial support for the block layer implementation of the sg v4 interface (BSG) -> STGT with a new struct backingstore_template bsg_bst sharing code with the original sg_bst. It adds for new function bs_bsg_cmd_submit() for incoming write I/O and bs_... 7 Jun 2010 00:57
[PATCH 1/3] [tgt]: Add proper STGT LUN backstore passthrough support (rev 3)
From: Nicholas Bellinger <nab(a)> This patch adds two new queueing and completion function pointers to struct scsi_lu called ->cmd_perform() and ->cmd_done() for handling existing internal STGT port emulation and the struct scsi_cmd passthrough with bs_sg.c. It retains the struct device_type_template... 7 Jun 2010 00:57

From: Nicholas Bellinger <nab(a)> Greeting STGT folks, This is the third round of patches for adding proper LUN passthrough support into STGT using struct scsi_lu->cmd_perform() and struct scsi_lu->cmd_done() callers with existing SG_IO and the new BSG v4 backstores. Following Tomo-san's input, ... 6 Jun 2010 23:51

[git pull] drm fixes
Hi Linus, 3 regressions fixes, one radeon loading on IGP, one i865 loading, one and an evergreen userspace interaction workaround. It adds hwmon support for a temperature sensor on r600 cards, later PM patches were build on this and Alex had tested them in one so I didn't want to cherry-pick around it. Al... 6 Jun 2010 23:51
