Default blk_end_request: add new request completion interface (take 4)

This patch adds 2 new interfaces for request completion:
o blk_end_request() : called without queue lock
o __blk_end_request() : called with queue lock held

blk_end_request takes 'error' as an argument instead of 'uptodate',
which current end_that_request_* take.
The meanings of values are below and the value is used when bio is
completed.
0 : success
< 0 : error

Some device drivers call some generic functions below between
end_that_request_{first/chunk} and end_that_request_last().
o add_disk_randomness()
o blk_queue_end_tag()
o blkdev_dequeue_request()
These are called in the blk_end_request interfaces as a part of
generic request completion.
So all device drivers become to call above functions.
To decide whether to call blkdev_dequeue_request(), blk_end_request
uses list_empty(&rq->queuelist) (blk_queued_rq() macro is added for it).
So drivers must re-initialize it using list_init() or so before calling
blk_end_request if drivers use it for its specific purpose.
(Currently, there is no driver which completes request without
re-initializing the queuelist after used it. So rq->queuelist
can be used for the purpose above.)

"Normal" drivers can be converted to use blk_end_request()
in a standard way shown below.

a) end_that_request_{chunk/first}
spin_lock_irqsave()
(add_disk_randomness(), blk_queue_end_tag(), blkdev_dequeue_request())
end_that_request_last()
spin_unlock_irqrestore()
=> blk_end_request()

b) spin_lock_irqsave()
end_that_request_{chunk/first}
(add_disk_randomness(), blk_queue_end_tag(), blkdev_dequeue_request())
end_that_request_last()
spin_unlock_irqrestore()
=> spin_lock_irqsave()
__blk_end_request()
spin_unlock_irqsave()

c) spin_lock_irqsave()
(add_disk_randomness(), blk_queue_end_tag(), blkdev_dequeue_request())
end_that_request_last()
spin_unlock_irqrestore()
=> blk_end_request() or spin_lock_irqsave()
__blk_end_request()
spin_unlock_irqrestore()

As far as I investigated in 2.6.24-rc5, only scsi uses the blk_queue_tag
and no files in drivers/scsi reserving tag_index in Scsi_Host->bqt.
So I would like to take the "absorbing start tag in the block layer" way.

The patch below is on top of the blk_end_request patch-set.
Is it acceptable?

Thanks,
Kiyoshi Ueda



Subject: [PATCH 31/31] blk_end_request: merge start_tag to block layer


This patch merges blk_queue_start_tag() into blkdev_dequeue_request().

blk_queue_start_tag() and blk_queue_end_tag() are a pair of
interfaces for starting/ending request tagging.
Since with the new blk_end_request interfaces, blk_queue_end_tag()
is done implicitly in the block layer, blk_queue_start_tag() should
be done in the block layer, too, for keeping the interface symmetric.

Originally, the start/end tag was not done by the block layer so that
drivers can choose tag numbers for their specific meanings.
But no driver uses the feature.
Scsi is the only user of the block layer tagging and it uses
the generic blk_queue_start/end_tag.
So moving the start/end tag to the block layer is not an issue now.
