Hello Linus,

Apologies for the late PULL request.

This series contains HCH's changes to absorb configfs attribute ->show()
+ ->store() function pointer usage from it's original tree-wide
consumers, into common configfs code.

It includes usb-gadget, target w/ drivers, netconsole and ocfs2 changes
to realize the improved simplicity, that now renders the original
include/target/configfs_macros.h CPP magic for fabric drivers and
others, unnecessary and obsolete.

And with common code in place, new configfs attributes can be added
easier than ever before.

Note, there are further improvements in-flight from other folks for v4.5
code in configfs land, plus number of target fixes for post -rc1 code.

Hello Nic,

Although the first version of my patch series that makes ABORT and LUN RESET handling synchronous was posted six months ago, although this patch series significantly improves reliability of the target core and also improves source code readability and although the entire patch series has received positive reviews from three experienced kernel developers I am still waiting for feedback from you about the technical aspects of these patches. You are the maintainer of the in-tree SCSI target subsystem so it is your role to provide feedback on patches for this subsystem.

The patch series I am referring to is "SCSI target patches for kernel v4.4" (
