I think it looks way too big.

If there are smaller patches, it might be a bit more reasonable.

Are there reported bugs that this patchset fixes?

thanks,

Yes, at least one I opened and which got a CODE_FIX when Tejun prepared the
first version of the patch.

Agreed (otherwise I would have submitted the patches already).


It may be possible to get rid of the couple of unrelated ones (sd
printing, SCSI constants). These were required for the real patches to
be able to build, but it would probably be easy to modify the real
patches to build against kernels without those otherwise unrelated patches.


Yes, but they are not regressions - libata has never done this right
until now.

Here are a few:

Ok, if people want to post some smaller patches to the stable team,
we'll be glad to consider them.

thanks,
