[ CCing Denis too ]

Let me revive this 4 years old thread.

I've just now noticed that instead of my patch above being merged, what
happened instead was

commit f2791e7eadf437633f30faa51b30878cf15650be
Author: Jens Axboe <axboe@fb.com>
Date: Thu Aug 25 08:56:51 2016 -0600

Revert "floppy: refactor open() flags handling"

This reverts commit 09954bad448791ef01202351d437abdd9497a804.


which was plain revert of 09954bad4 (without any further explanation),
which in turn reintroduced the O_NDELAY issue, and I've just been hit by
it again.

I am not able to find any e-mail thread that'd indicate why ultimately
revert happened, instead of mergin my fix.
Jens, do you have any idea?

Thanks,
