Hello Jens,

There are 3 fixes for Xen blk drivers. One adds myself as a maintainer
(together with Konrad). There's also one to improve compatibility with
older xen-blkfront versions that did not specify a protocol version.
The remaining one is a fix for blkfront to correctly account the
number of requests on the queue when resuming from suspension.

Thanks, Roger.

The following changes since commit

Linux 3.19-rc7 (2015-02-01 20:07:21 -0800)

are available in the git repository at:

git:// for-jens-3.20

This is based on 3.19-rc7, which means that when I pulled it into for-3.20/drivers, I get a ton of unrelated commits as well. That's no good. The pull request should be based on for-3.20/drivers or earlier. So please rebase the three patches on top of for-3.20/drivers. Konrad does the right thing here. Not sure if you are going to be sending pull requests going forward (or both of you), but it might not hurt to sync up with Konrad and ensure you guys are on the same page.

Secondly, this is a bit late. But since it's just two fixes (not features) and a maintainer update, it's not a huge deal. It's a bit annoying though since every pull request like this will push my pull request by a day or two, so generally I prefer to have pull requests at least the week before the merge window opens.
