Re: linux-image 4.3.3 bcache stability patches

I meant, which kernel source version did you start with and which
patches did you apply?

I had no success with patching latest jessie kernel 3.16.7-ckt20 directly with Eric Wheeler summary pull (http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.bcache.devel/3292) - "maybe earlier" not working :), so I took all the patches (mostly from Ken Overstreet) from https://github.com/torvalds/linux/commits/v3.17/drivers/md/bcache since:
arch: Mass conversion of smp_mb__*() …
Peter Zijlstra committed with Ingo Molnar on 17 Mar 2014
(this was last patch for 3.16)
All the changes are made in same folder, except some minor header changes in kernel. "bcache: Make sure to pass GFP_WAIT to mempool_alloc()" patch indicates reverse patch, answered n and applied anyway. Checked btree.rej/btree.c file (line with GFP_NOIO) and checked against same code from https://github.com/torvalds/linux/tree/v3.17/drivers/md/bcache.c - it was the same.

Then I took these 8 stability patches from Eric Wheeler (https://github.com/torvalds/linux/compare/master...ewheelerinc:bcache-patches-for-3.17) and they pass through.
