[GIT PULL] block/IO patches for 2.6.35-rc

From: Jens Axboe
Date: Tue Jun 29 2010 - 02:48:48 EST

Hi Linus,

The two important items in this batch is the writeback series from
Christoph, which has been simmering in -next since you left, and a fix
for the boot time warning with some combination of cgroup and the cfq
group io scheduler option. No issues have been reported so far on the
writeback side, and my testing looks good to.

Another important fix is the CFQ cooperative merge fix from Jeff. This
fixes a potential hang/crash with the scheduler (bugzilla 16217).

The remaining few bits are just minor fixes.

Please pull.
