Hi Linus,

Here are the core block changes for this merge window. Not a lot of
exciting stuff going on in this round, most of the changes have been on
the driver side of things. That pull request is coming next. This pull
request contains:

- A set of fixes for chained bio handling from Christoph.

- A tag bounds check for blk-mq from Hannes, ensuring that we don't do
something stupid if a device reports an invalid tag value.

- A set of fixes/updates for the CFQ IO scheduler from Jan Kara.

- A set of blk-mq fixes from Keith, adding support for dynamic hardware
queues, and fixing init of max_dev_sectors for stacking devices.

- A fix for the dynamic hw context from Ming.

- Enabling of cgroup writeback support on a block device, from Shaohua.

Please pull!
