  UBI: block: Remove __initdata from ubiblock_param_ops (2014-03-21 19:37:03 +0200)

This pull request includes the 'ubiblock' driver which provides R/O block
access to UBI volumes. It is useful for those who want to use squashfs on top
of raw flash devices. UBI will provide bit-flip handling and wear-levelling in
this case (e.g., if there are other UBI volumes with R/W UBIFS too).

The driver is actually pretty small and it is part of the UBI kernel subsystem.
Delivered by Ezequiel Garcia, along with a piece of documentation on the MTD
web site and the user-space tool for creating and removing block devices.

Artem Bityutskiy (2):
      UBI: block: do not use term "attach"
      UBI: rename block device ioctls

Ezequiel Garcia (6):
      UBI: R/O block driver on top of UBI volumes
      UBI: block: Mark init-only symbol as __initdata
      UBI: block: Use 'u64' for the 64-bit dividend
      UBI: block: Add CONFIG_BLOCK dependency
      UBI: block: Use ENOSYS as return value when CONFIG_UBIBLOCK=n
      UBI: make UBI_IOCVOLCRBLK take a parameter for future usage
