Applied patches 1, 2, 3, and 6 through 11 to my block branch.

So what remains are patches 4, 5, and 12.

For 4, I don’t know whether the approach is too heavy-handed (maybe a
simple bdrv_drained_begin()/-end() would suffice), and whether it’s even
right to wrap the whole function in a drained section.  (Unless there
are objections, I’ll still take it for rc2.)

5 is just pretty complex, and it also depends on my other series in its
current form.  So I wouldn’t like to take it without any reviews.

12 is a test that will fail without 4 and 5, so I can’t take it without
those two.
