Subject: remove blkdev_get as a public API
Date: Thu, 17 Sep 2020 18:57:06 +0200
Message-ID: <20200917165720.3285256-1-hch@lst.de> (raw)

Hi Jens,

this series removes blkdev_get as a public API, leaving it as just an
implementation detail of blkdev_get_by_path and blkdev_get_by_dev.  The
reason for that is that blkdev_get is a very confusing API that requires
a struct block_device to be fed in, but then actually consumes the
reference.  And it turns out just using the two above mentioned APIs
actually significantly simplifies the code as well.
