Hi Linus,

This is the core block IO changes for this merge window. Nothing earth
shattering in here, it's mostly just fixes. In detail:

- Fix for a long standing issue where wrong ordering in blk-mq caused
order_to_size() to spew a warning. From Bart.

- Async discard support from Christoph. Basically just splitting our
sync interface into a submit + wait part.

- Add a cleaner interface for flagging whether a device has a write back
cache or not. We've previously overloaded blk_queue_flush() with this,
but let's make it more explicit. Drivers cleaned up and updated in the
drivers pull request. From me.

- Fix for a double check for whether IO accounting is enabled or not.
From Michael Callahan.

- Fix for the async discard from Mike Snitzer, reinstating the early
EOPNOTSUPP return if the device doesn't support discards.

- Also from Mike, export bio_inc_remaining() so dm can drop it's private
copy of it.

- From Ming Lin, add support for passing in an offset for request

- Tag function export from Sagi, which will be used in NVMe in the
drivers pull.

- Two blktrace related fixes from Shaohua.

- Propagate NOMERGE flag when making a request from a bio, also from

- An optimization to not parse cgroup paths in blk-throttle, if we don't
need to. From Shaohua.

Please pull!
