Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block
Pull misc block fixes from Jens Axboe: "Stuff that got collected after the merge window opened. This contains: - NVMe: - Fix for non-striped transfer size setting for NVMe from Sathyavathi. - (Some) support for the weird Apple nvme controller in the macbooks. From Stephan G√ľnther. - The error value leak for dax from Al. - A few minor blk-mq tweaks from me. - Add the new linux-block@vger.kernel.org mailing list to the MAINTAINERS file. - Discard fix for brd, from Jan. - A kerneldoc warning for block core from Randy. - An older fix from Vivek, converting a WARN_ON() to a rate limited printk when a device is hot removed with dirty inodes" * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block: block: don't hardcode blk_qc_t -> tag mask dax_io(): don't let non-error value escape via retval instead of EFAULT block: fix blk-core.c kernel-doc warning fs/block_dev.c: Remove WARN_ON() when inode writeback fails NVMe: add support for Apple NVMe controller NVMe: use split lo_hi_{read,write}q blk-mq: mark __blk_mq_complete_request() static MAINTAINERS: add reference to new linux-block list NVMe: Increase the max transfer size when mdts is 0 brd: Refuse improperly aligned discard requests
