Subject: [PATCH V3 0/7] blk-mq: don't allocate driver tag beforehand for flush rq

Hi Jens,

This patchset avoids to allocate driver tag beforehand for flush rq
in case of I/O scheduler, then flush rq isn't treated specially
wrt. get/put driver tag, code gets cleanup much, such as,
reorder_tags_to_front() is removed, and we needn't to worry
about request order in dispatch list for avoiding I/O deadlock.

'dbench -t 30 -s 64' has been run on different devices(shared tag,
multi-queue, singele queue, ...), and no issues are observed,
even very low queue depth test are run, debench still works well.

Please consider it for V4.15, thanks!

	- rebase on the latest for-next of block tree
	- clean up commit log and comment
	- include Jianchao's fix on put driver tag

	- release driver tag before requeue
	- warning on inserting a req with driver tag

Jianchao Wang (1):
  blk-mq: put the driver tag of nxt rq before first one is requeued

Ming Lei (6):
  blk-flush: don't run queue for requests of bypassing flush
  block: pass 'run_queue' to blk_mq_request_bypass_insert
  blk-flush: use blk_mq_request_bypass_insert()
  blk-mq-sched: decide how to handle flush rq via RQF_FLUSH_SEQ
  blk-mq: move blk_mq_put_driver_tag*() into blk-mq.h
  blk-mq: don't allocate driver tag beforehand for flush rq
