commit 55cbeea76e769b12cd0f1340132d32781f73a3dc
Author: Jens Axboe <axboe@kernel.dk>
Date: Thu Dec 6 22:17:44 2018 -0700

blk-mq: punt failed direct issue to dispatch list

commit c616cbee97aed4bc6178f148a7240206dcdb85a6 upstream.

After the direct dispatch corruption fix, we permanently disallow direct
dispatch of non read/write requests. This works fine off the normal IO
path, as they will be retried like any other failed direct dispatch
request. But for the blk_insert_cloned_request() that only DM uses to
bypass the bottom level scheduler, we always first attempt direct
dispatch. For some types of requests, that's now a permanent failure,
and no amount of retrying will make that succeed. This results in a
livelock.

Instead of making special cases for what we can direct issue, and now
having to deal with DM solving the livelock while still retaining a BUSY
condition feedback loop, always just add a request that has been through
->queue_rq() to the hardware queue dispatch list. These are safe to use
as no merging can take place there. Additionally, if requests do have
prepped data from drivers, we aren't dependent on them not sharing space
in the request structure to safely add them to the IO scheduler lists.

This basically reverts ffe81d45322c and is based on a patch from Ming,
but with the list insert case covered as well.

4.20-rc6

The newest "mainline" kernel, version 4.20-rc6, has been been made available for testing.

.....I say "at least", not because I'm particularly worried about the
technical details and any outstanding bugs, but because of the whole
holiday season timing. I still suspect that what I'll do is release
4.20 just before xmas (so with the usual "rc7->final" cadence) but
then just leave a dead week for the holiday season.....

Well, that's more like it.

This is a *tiny* rc7, just how I like it. Maybe it's because everybody
is too busy prepping for the holidays, and maybe it's because we
simply are doing well. Regardless, it's been a quiet week, and I hope
the trend continues.

The patch looks pretty small too, although it's skewed by a couple of
bigger fixes (re-apply i915 workarounds after reset, and dm zoned bio
completion fix). Other than that it's mainly all pretty small, and
spread out (usual bulk of drivers, but some arch updates, filesystem
fixes, core fixes, test updates..)

The plan remains the same: if everything continues normally, I'll
release 4.20 just before christmas, and then just have a more
leisurely merge window than normal. I already have a few early pull
requests, and I continue to encourage people to take that approach,
instead of sending things in during the holiday season.

nvidia 340.107 not building with 4.4.168 on slackware64-14.2

On my slackware64-14.2 system, the nvidia legacy driver 340.107 is not building under kernel 4.4.168. I reverted back to kernel 4.4.166, on which it builds fine. I do not know the reason for the driver build failure on 4.4.168, but it must have some new incompatible change.

Have you tried this patch from Arch Linux?:

Unhappy Kernel 4.19.11 does not build for me on fully patched Slackware 14.2

This does not build on my fully-patched Slackware64 14.2 system.
The error I get is
Code:
make[5]: *** No rule to make target '/usr/include/bits/long-double.h', needed by '/usr/src/linux-stable_reclone/L64/tools/objtool/fixdep.o'.  Stop.
The message means that glibc is too old. It is building right now in my current VM (which is not up to date: it has glibc-2.27-x86_64-1 but that supplies the missing header).

hi duncan, I don't know what's happening there but just to confirm you that I just tried to build kernel 4.19.11 on my fully patched slackware64-14.2 machine using the config file from slackware64-current/source/k/kernel-configs/config-generic-4.19.11.x64 and it went fine.
