      Says Jens:
       "Time to push off some of the pending items.  I really wanted to wait
        until we had the regression nailed, but alas it's not quite there yet.
        But I'm very confident that it's "just" a missing expire on exit, so
        fix from Tejun should be fairly trivial.  I'm headed out for a week on
        the slopes.
        - Killing the barrier part of mtip32xx.  It doesn't really support
          barriers, and it doesn't need them (writes are fully ordered).
        - A few fixes from Dan Carpenter, preventing overflows of integer
        - A fixup for loop, fixing a previous commit that didn't quite solve
          the partial read problem from Dave Young.
        - A bio integer overflow fix from Kent Overstreet.
        - Improvement/fix of the door "keep locked" part of the cdrom shared
          code from Paolo Benzini.
        - A few cfq fixes from Shaohua Li.
        - A fix for bsg sysfs warning when removing a file it did not create
          from Stanislaw Gruszka.
        - Two fixes for floppy from Vivek, preventing a crash.
        - A few block core fixes from Tejun.  One killing the over-optimized
          ioc exit path, cleaning that up nicely.  Two others fixing an oops
          on elevator switch, due to calling into the scheduler merge check
          code without holding the queue lock."
      * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block:
        block: fix lockdep warning on io_context release put_io_context()
        relay: prevent integer overflow in relay_open()
        loop: zero fill bio instead of return -EIO for partial read
        bio: don't overflow in bio_get_nr_vecs()
        floppy: Fix a crash during rmmod
        floppy: Cleanup disk->queue before caling put_disk() if add_disk() was never called
        cdrom: move shared static to cdrom_device_info
        bsg: fix sysfs link remove warning
        block: don't call elevator callbacks for plug merges
        block: separate out blk_rq_merge_ok() and blk_try_merge() from elevator functions
        mtip32xx: removed the irrelevant argument of mtip_hw_submit_io() and the unused member of struct driver_data
        block: strip out locking optimization in put_io_context()
        cdrom: use copy_to_user() without the underscores
        block: fix ioc locking warning
        block: fix NULL icq_cache reference
        block,cfq: change code order

       "block: strip out locking optimization in put_io_context()"
      removed ioc_lock depth lockdep annoation along with locking
      optimization; however, while recursing from put_io_context() is no
      longer possible, ioc_release_fn() may still end up putting the last
      reference of another ioc through elevator, which wlil grab ioc->lock
      triggering spurious (as the ioc is always different one) A-A deadlock
      As this can only happen one time from ioc_release_fn(), using non-zero
      subclass from ioc_release_fn() is enough.  Use subclass 1.
