Please explain in the patch description why a holder pointer is introduced
in struct bdev_handle and how it relates to the bd_holder pointer in struct
block_device. Is one of the purposes of this patch series perhaps to add
support for multiple holders per block device?

That is all in patch 0/32.  Why repeat it?

This cover letter:

The word "holder" doesn't even occur in that cover letter so how could the
answer to my question be present in the cover letter?
