Following patches add support to map multiple blocks in ->get_block().
This is will allow us to handle mapping of multiple disk blocks for
mpage_readpages() and mpage_writepages() etc. Instead of adding new
argument, I use "b_size" to indicate the amount of disk mapping needed
for get_block(). And also, on success get_block() actually indicates
the amount of disk mapping it did.
Now that get_block() can handle multiple blocks, there is no need
for ->get_blocks() which was added for DIO.
[PATCH 1/3] pass b_size to ->get_block()
[PATCH 2/3] map multiple blocks for mpage_readpages()
[PATCH 3/3] remove ->get_blocks() support
I noticed decent improvements (reduced sys time) on JFS, XFS and ext3.
(on simple "dd" read tests).

Andrew, Could you include it in -mm tree ?
