Hmm, but we've just removed all pipeline requests with this patch?

[ ->first_stage and ->next_stage are always NULL after this patch which makes
  it possible to remove the rest of (now never executed) code for pipeline
  support, same for idetape_plug_pipeline() and IDETAPE_FLAG_PIPELINE* flags ]

Isn't idetape_init_read() taking care of 3.?

Seems like we can get away with:

Subject: [PATCH 4/4] ide-tape: remove pipeline-specific code from idetape_add_chrdev_read_request()

In order to do away with queueing read requests on the pipeline, several things
have to be done:

1. Do not allocate additional pipeline stages in idetape_init_read() until
(tape->nr_stages < max_stages) and do only read operation preparations. As a
collateral result, idetape_add_stage_tail() becomes unused so remove it.

2. Queue the read request's buffer directly thru idetape_queue_rw_tail().

3. Remove now unused idetape_kmalloc_stage() and idetape_switch_buffers().

[bart: simplify the original patch]
