Subject: [PATCH 0/6] rhashtable: assorted fixes and enhancements

 I'm hoping to use rhashtable in lustre, to replace the resizeable
 hashtable implementation in libcfs.
 While working through the conversion I found some minor bugs in the
 rhashtable code and documentation, and some areas where enhancements
 could make rhashtable a better fit for lustre.

 Following 6 patches are the result.  Please review.

 It would help me if I could get an Ack for these patches, and could
 then submit them through the drivers/staging tree together with the
 lustre changes that make use to rhashtable.  The first 2 are mostly
 just fixes to comments and can go in through the netdev tree if you
 prefer - the last 4 are needed for lustre to work



NeilBrown (6):
      rhashtable: improve documentation for rhashtable_walk_peek()
      rhashtable: remove outdated comments about grow_decision etc
      rhashtable: reset iter when rhashtable_walk_start sees new table
      rhashtable: allow a walk of the hash table without missing objects.
      rhashtable: support guaranteed successful insertion.
      rhashtable: allow element counting to be disabled.
