Will do.

My SCSI knowledge is concentrated on optical drives, which i am used to
operate from userland via ioctl(SG_IO). So if it's not about cdrom or sr
(or isofs), i am not qualified to have an own opinion.

I saw no patch sets which would deal with my topics, other than the very
broad one by Christoph Hellwig which by two patches affects sr:

I studied it, but the only thought it gave me was that my wished new ioctl
had to become more independent of the entrails of general block device
handling. (Now it is much leaner and less needy of justifications that it
is indeed harmless.)

Hm. Jens Axboe writes "Applied". Maybe i can learn to which repo and
rebase my patch for that one ...

Have a nice day :)
