[BLOCK] ll_rw_blk: Enable out-of-order request completions through softirq
Jens Axboe [Mon, 9 Jan 2006 15:02:34 +0000 (16:02 +0100)]
Request completion can be a quite heavy process, since it needs to
iterate through the entire request and complete the bio's it holds.
This patch adds blk_complete_request() which moves this processing
into a dedicated block softirq.
