Subject: [PATCH 3.13 048/187] blk-mq: fix initializing request's start time -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Ming Lei <>

commit 0fec08b4ecfc36fd8a64432343b2964fb86d2675 upstream.

blk_rq_init() is called in req's complete handler to initialize
the request, so the members of start_time and start_time_ns might
become inaccurate when it is allocated in future.

The patch initializes the two members in blk_mq_rq_ctx_init() to
fix the problem.
