I didn't rebase my existing patch queue. I started a new for-next based
on linus/master. Half of this new QLogic driver lives under net so I had
to wait for Linus to pull DaveM's tree before I could merge the SCSI
portion :(

We often have to do two-stage merge windows with SCSI because of
dependencies on changes in both block and net (the latter increasingly
so because of the popularity of converged adapters that do both networks
and storage).
