Vinod, Dan,

This series is v2 of the one previously sent by Thomas Petazzoni [1].
I've tried to address the comments made by Andi and Dan, and also kept
Thomas' ultimate goal: get rid of the mv_xor_slot_cleanup() function
(which takes the spinlock).

The first patch removes the unneeded call to mv_xor_clean_completed_slots(),
in mv_xor_as explained by Dan [2].

The other two patches replace the calls to mv_xor_slot_cleanup() with
calls to __mv_xor_slot_cleanup(). This allows to have the same "spinlock held"
requirement on all callers.

The patchset is based on v3.14-rc5 and has been tested on an Armada XP GP board.
