I've pushed out a new git tree:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/willy/ssd.git;a=shortlog;h=trim-20090502

Changes since the last version:

 - Based on 2.6.30-rc4.
 - Dropped the three patches which were already merged.
 - Shuffled 'Make DISCARD_BARRIER and DISCARD_NOBARRIER writes instead of
   reads' to the front of the queue since it's not controversial and could
   be merged earlier.
 - Inserted 'Unify blk_ioctl_discard and blkdev_issue_discard' as patch
two.
 - Updated 'ide: Add support for TRIM' to compile with new IDE code.

Still to do:
 - Understand all the changes Bart made to the IDE code; I didn't make all
   the changes that he did.  I just made it compile for now.
 - Dave had some objections to the description of 'Make DISCARD_BARRIER and
   DISCARD_NOBARRIER writes instead of reads', but didn't propose
replacement
   text.
 - Figure out what to do about memory allocation.
 - Handle error returns from discard_prep.
 - Test the new code still works.
 - Delve into the latest SCSI spec and see if anything changed in UNMAP

Given the extensive length of the todo list, I shan't send out the
mailbomb.
