Hmm.. the 1/2 patch has 'discard' in the subject, while this has 'trim'.. is 
that intentional? 
I guess 'discard' is the generic name, while protocol specific names are TRIM 
for ATA, and SCSI UNMAP for SAS ?

Also: Shouldn't this be against upstream Linux 3.x these days, aswell, now when 
both blkback and blkfront are upstream?
