Merge tag 'block-5.14-2021-08-27' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block
Pull block fixes from Jens Axboe: - Revert the mq-deadline priority handling, it's causing serious performance regressions. While experimental patches exists to fix this up, it's too late to do so now. Revert it and re-do it properly for 5.15 instead. - Fix a NULL vs IS_ERR() regression in this release (Dan) - Fix a mq-deadline accounting regression in this release (Bart) - Mark cryptoloop as deprecated. It's broken and dm-crypt fully supports it, and it's actively intefering with loop. Plan on removal for 5.16 (Christoph) * tag 'block-5.14-2021-08-27' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block: cryptoloop: add a deprecation warning pd: fix a NULL vs IS_ERR() check Revert "block/mq-deadline: Prioritize high-priority requests" mq-deadline: Fix request accounting
