Okay, I don't mind if you would like to rewrite that patch.  The 
version I wrote didn't just move code from one subroutine to another; 
it also made a few semantic changes (the retry counter and the "error" 
argument to blk_end_request()).  You'll probably want to break it 
up into a few patches, where the first simply moves the code around and 
the later ones do more significant things.

As I recall, the most recent version of that patch is here:
