Subject: [GIT PULL] Core block IO bits for 3.19

Hi Linus,

This is the pull request for the core block IO changes for 3.19. Not a
huge round this time, mostly lots of little good fixes. The pull request

- Fix a bug in sysfs blktrace interface causing a NULL pointer
  dereference, when enabled/disabled through that API. From Arianna

- Various updates/fixes/improvements for blk-mq:

        - A set of updates from Bart, mostly fixing buts in the tag

        - Cleanup/code consolidation from Christoph.

        - Extend queue_rq API to be able to handle batching issues of IO
          requests. NVMe will utilize this shortly. From me.

        - A few tag and request handling updates from me.

        - Cleanup of the preempt handling for running queues from Paolo.

        - Prevent running of unmapped hardware queues from Ming Lei.

        - Move the kdump memory limiting check to be in the correct
          location, from Shaohua.

        - Initialize all software queues at init time from Takashi. This
          prevents a kobject warning when CPUs are brought online that
          weren't online when a queue was registered.

- Single writeback fix for I_DIRTY clearing from Tejun. Queued with the
  core IO changes, since it's just a single fix.

- Version X of the __bio_add_page() segment addition retry from
  Maurizio. Hope the Xth time is the charm.

- Documentation fixup for IO scheduler merging from Jan.

- Introduce (and use) generic IO stat accounting helpers for non-rq
  drivers, from Gu Zheng.

- Kill off artificial limiting of max sectors in a request from

Please pull!
