Hmm... I see.  That's something I didn't expect.

But I don't think this is the correct place to do it.  The problem
happens because block layer consumes the event but doesn't remember it
when the time for revalidation comes.  It should be done by block
layer, not sr.  Hmmm... looking at the code, the new disk event code
should handle this correctly.  Was 2.6.38 showing the problem too?

Thanks.
