[PATCH block#for-2.6.36] block_dev: always serialize exclusive open attempts

[PATCH 2/2] writeback: Account for pages written back belonging to a particular zone
When reclaim encounters dirty file pages on the LRU lists, it wakes up flusher threads to clean pages belonging to old inodes. In the event the inode has dirty pages on multiple zones, the flusher threads may exit before pages within the zone of interest are clean. This patch accounts for the zone page reclaim is i... 4 Aug 2010 11:24

[RFC PATCH 0/2] Prioritise inodes and zones for writeback required by page reclaim
Commenting on the series "Reduce writeback from page reclaim context V6" Andrew Morton noted; direct-reclaim wants to write a dirty page because that page is in the zone which the caller wants to allocate from! Telling the flusher threads to perform generic writeback will sometimes cause them to just gum t... 4 Aug 2010 11:24

USB card reader trouble
I'm having trouble reading Compact flash and SD cards on the same card reader.
