    block: Rename queue dead flag · 3f3299d5
    Bart Van Assche authored
    QUEUE_FLAG_DEAD is used to indicate that queuing new requests must
    stop. After this flag has been set queue draining starts. However,
    during the queue draining phase it is still safe to invoke the
    queue's request_fn, so QUEUE_FLAG_DYING is a better name for this
    This patch has been generated by running the following command
    over the kernel source tree:
    git grep -lEw 'blk_queue_dead|QUEUE_FLAG_DEAD' |
        xargs sed -i.tmp -e 's/blk_queue_dead/blk_queue_dying/g'      \
            -e 's/QUEUE_FLAG_DEAD/QUEUE_FLAG_DYING/g';                \
    sed -i.tmp -e "s/QUEUE_FLAG_DYING$(printf \\t)*5/QUEUE_FLAG_DYING$(printf \\t)5/g" \
        include/linux/blkdev.h;                                       \
    sed -i.tmp -e 's/ DEAD/ DYING/g' -e 's/dead queue/a dying queue/' \
        -e 's/Dead queue/A dying queue/' block/blk-core.c
