Subject[PATCH 00/16] sed-opal: fix shadow MBR enable/disable and clean up code
This patch series contains various code cleanup and fixes for Opal SED support.
It's been created by taking a part of the original patch series by Jonas and me
(PATCHv4 block: sed-opal: support shadow MBR done flag and write) [1], as
suggested by Christoph in [2].

The most important patch is the first one where I tried to fix the shadow MBR
enable/disable issue we discussed in [3]. This change goes against Christoph's
original propsal in [4] but I think - in light of the issue and keeping in mind
the planned addition of an IOCTL specifically for toggling the done flag - that
passing just OPAL_TRUE or OPAL_FALSE to set_mbr_done and set_mbr_enable_disable
is more useful and also more understandable. Maybe this change is superfluous if
Scott found the time to submit his take on the fix. (?)

I tried to include all the feedback from the v4 review[1]. I also added some
more trivial changes (11/16 as suggested in [4]) and also 13/16 motivated by the
same idea - that's why I again reached the magical number of 16 patches.

I kept the reviewed-by/acked-by tags where the changes were trivial but I
removed them where I thought a re-review would be useful.

I plan to submit the remaining patches from the original series (these that add
new Opal IOCTLs) after this fix and cleanup is accepted.

I did a brief test toggling shadow MBR and unlocking a locking range. I will try
to do more thorough tests - but I will not get to it before the beginning of the
next week. It would be great if this could get some more testing. Especially the
unlock from suspend part - that's something I don't have set up and I have not

The series applies on v5.0-rc6.
