[PATCH] async: Manage execution domains
Currently execution domains do not interact well with full synchronisation requests. If the sync request is performed before the async task has begun, then the manager will never schedule() and so busy-wait forever on a UP box. By reorganising the tasks into both a per-domain and global list, we can either wait on ... 7 Mar 2010 15:10

Is SG the only way to flush a disk cache from userspace?
I am writing userspace code that needs to work against any vanilla kernel, so the question is, is the scsi generic interface the only way to flush a volatile cache on a disk drive from userspace? I've written a fault tolerant, distributed storage application that runs under linux and would like to utilize the vol... 7 Mar 2010 14:03

block: blk-timeout.c possible mishandling of jiffies wrap?
Hi Jens, In blk_rq_timed_out_timer() in blk-timeout.c the comment at line 129 says that the request deadline can never be zero as that gets fixed in blk_add_timer. However commit 7838c15b8dd18e78a523513749e5b54bda07b0cb removed the line that bumped deadline if zero. So now AFAICT there's nothing to prevent ... 7 Mar 2010 12:57
