Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block
Pull block layer updates from Jens Axboe: "I've got a few bits pending for 3.8 final, that I better get sent out. It's all been sitting for a while, I consider it safe. It contains: - Two bug fixes for mtip32xx, fixing a driver hang and a crash. - A few-liner protocol error fix for drbd. - A few fixes for the xen block front/back driver, fixing a potential data corruption issue. - A race fix for disk_clear_events(), causing spurious warnings. Out of the Chrome OS base. - A deadlock fix for disk_clear_events(), moving it to the a unfreezable workqueue. Also from the Chrome OS base." * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block: drbd: fix potential protocol error and resulting disconnect/reconnect mtip32xx: fix for crash when the device surprise removed during rebuild mtip32xx: fix for driver hang after a command timeout block: prevent race/cleanup block: remove deadlock in disk_clear_events xen-blkfront: handle bvecs with partial data llist/xen-blkfront: implement safe version of llist_for_each_entry xen-blkback: implement safe iterator for the list of persistent grants
