I don't understand, what are you trying to do with this? I don't see
any follow-on patches that use this, nor can I find a 00/38 patch for
this series...

Well, I've copied lkml only for the generic interface changes.
The main bulk of patches have been posted to linux-scsi.
But it seems I should have posted all of them to lkml, too.

As I'll have to redo the patchset anyway as Steven Rostedt isn't so sure about his seq_buf patches I'll be posting the next series to
both, lkml and linux-scsi.

Or do you prefer to keep the printk() patches as a separate patchset and have the scsi fixes on top of that?
