Pull block IO update from Jens Axboe: "Core block IO bits for 3.7. Not a huge round this time, it contains: - First series from Kent cleaning up and generalizing bio allocation and freeing. - WRITE_SAME support from Martin. - Mikulas patches to prevent O_DIRECT crashes when someone changes the block size of a device. - Make bio_split() work on data-less bio's (like trim/discards). - A few other minor fixups." Fixed up silent semantic mis-merge as per Mikulas Patocka and Andrew Morton. It is due to the VM no longer using a prio-tree (see commit 6b2dbba8b6ac: "mm: replace vma prio_tree with an interval tree"). So make set_blocksize() use mapping_mapped() instead of open-coding the internal VM knowledge that has changed. * 'for-3.7/core' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block: (26 commits) block: makes bio_split support bio without data scatterlist: refactor the sg_nents scatterlist: add sg_nents fs: fix include/percpu-rwsem.h export error percpu-rw-semaphore: fix documentation typos fs/block_dev.c:1644:5: sparse: symbol 'blkdev_mmap' was not declared blockdev: turn a rw semaphore into a percpu rw semaphore Fix a crash when block device is read and block size is changed at the same time block: fix request_queue->flags initialization block: lift the initial queue bypass mode on blk_register_queue() instead of blk_init_allocated_queue() block: ioctl to zero block ranges block: Make blkdev_issue_zeroout use WRITE SAME block: Implement support for WRITE SAME block: Consolidate command flag and queue limit checks for merges block: Clean up special command handling logic block/blk-tag.c: Remove useless kfree block: remove the duplicated setting for congestion_threshold block: reject invalid queue attribute values block: Add bio_clone_bioset(), bio_clone_kmalloc() block: Consolidate bio_alloc_bioset(), bio_kmalloc() ...

2012-08-01block: add partition resize function to blkpg ioctlVivek Goyal
Add a new operation code (BLKPG_RESIZE_PARTITION) to the BLKPG ioctl that allows altering the size of an existing partition, even if it is currently in use. This patch converts hd_struct->nr_sects into sequence counter because One might extend a partition while IO is happening to it and update of nr_sects can be non-atomic on 32bit machines with 64bit sector_t. This can lead to issues like reading inconsistent size of a partition. Sequence counter have been used so that readers don't have to take bdev mutex lock as we call sector_in_part() very frequently. Now all the access to hd_struct->nr_sects should happen using sequence counter read/update helper functions part_nr_sects_read/part_nr_sects_write. There is one exception though, set_capacity()/get_capacity(). I think theoritically race should exist there too but this patch does not modify set_capacity()/get_capacity() due to sheer number of call sites and I am afraid that change might break something. I have left that as a TODO item. We can handle it later if need be. This patch does not introduce any new races as such w.r.t set_capacity()/get_capacity(). v2: Add CONFIG_LBDAF test to UP preempt case as suggested by Phillip.

2012-01-05vfs: fix up ENOIOCTLCMD error handlingLinus Torvalds
We're doing some odd things there, which already messes up various users (see the net/socket.c code that this removes), and it was going to add yet more crud to the block layer because of the incorrect error code translation. ENOIOCTLCMD is not an error return that should be returned to user mode from the "ioctl()" system call, but it should *not* be translated as EINVAL ("Invalid argument"). It should be translated as ENOTTY ("Inappropriate ioctl for device"). That EINVAL confusion has apparently so permeated some code that the block layer actually checks for it, which is sad. We continue to do so for now, but add a big comment about how wrong that is, and we should remove it entirely eventually. In the meantime, this tries to keep the changes localized to just the EINVAL -> ENOTTY fix, and removing code that makes it harder to do the right thing.

2011-08-23block: add GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCANTejun Heo
There are cases where suppressing partition scan is useful - e.g. for lo devices and pseudo SATA devices which advertise to be a disk but get upset on partition scan (some port multiplier control devices show such behavior). This patch adds GENHD_FL_NO_PART_SCAN which suppresses partition scan regardless of the number of possible partitions. disk_partitionable() is renamed to disk_part_scan_enabled() as suppressing partition scan doesn't imply the device can't be partitioned using BLKPG_ADD/DEL_PARTITION calls from userland. show_partition() now directly tests disk_max_parts() to maintain backward-compatibility. -v2: Updated to make it clear that only partition scan is suppressed not partitioning itself as suggested by Kay Sievers.

2011-02-24block: fix refcounting in BLKBSZSETMiklos Szeredi
Adam Kovari and others reported that disconnecting an USB drive with an ntfs-3g filesystem would cause "kernel BUG at fs/inode.c:1421!" to be triggered. The BUG could be traced back to ioctl(BLKBSZSET), which would erroneously decrement the refcount on the bdev. This is because blkdev_get() expects the refcount to be already incremented and either returns success or decrements the refcount and returns an error. The bug was introduced by e525fd89 (block: make blkdev_get/put() handle exclusive access), which didn't take into account this behavior of blkdev_get().

2010-11-13block: make blkdev_get/put() handle exclusive accessTejun Heo
Over time, block layer has accumulated a set of APIs dealing with bdev open, close, claim and release. * blkdev_get/put() are the primary open and close functions. * bd_claim/release() deal with exclusive open. * open/close_bdev_exclusive() are combination of open and claim and the other way around, respectively. * bd_link/unlink_disk_holder() to create and remove holder/slave symlinks. * open_by_devnum() wraps bdget() + blkdev_get(). The interface is a bit confusing and the decoupling of open and claim makes it impossible to properly guarantee exclusive access as in-kernel open + claim sequence can disturb the existing exclusive open even before the block layer knows the current open if for another exclusive access. Reorganize the interface such that, * blkdev_get() is extended to include exclusive access management. @holder argument is added and, if is @FMODE_EXCL specified, it will gain exclusive access atomically w.r.t. other exclusive accesses. * blkdev_put() is similarly extended. It now takes @mode argument and if @FMODE_EXCL is set, it releases an exclusive access. Also, when the last exclusive claim is released, the holder/slave symlinks are removed automatically. * bd_claim/release() and close_bdev_exclusive() are no longer necessary and either made static or removed. * bd_link_disk_holder() remains the same but bd_unlink_disk_holder() is no longer necessary and removed. * open_bdev_exclusive() becomes a simple wrapper around lookup_bdev() and blkdev_get(). It also has an unexpected extra bdev_read_only() test which probably should be moved into blkdev_get(). * open_by_devnum() is modified to take @holder argument and pass it to blkdev_get(). Most of bdev open/close operations are unified into blkdev_get/put() and most exclusive accesses are tested atomically at the open time (as it should). This cleans up code and removes some, both valid and invalid, but unnecessary all the same, corner cases. open_bdev_exclusive() and open_by_devnum() can use further cleanup - rename to blkdev_get_by_path() and blkdev_get_by_devt() and drop special features. Well, let's leave them for another day. Most conversions are straight-forward. drbd conversion is a bit more involved as there was some reordering, but the logic should stay the same.

2010-09-16block: remove BLKDEV_IFL_WAITChristoph Hellwig
All the blkdev_issue_* helpers can only sanely be used for synchronous caller. To issue cache flushes or barriers asynchronously the caller needs to set up a bio by itself with a completion callback to move the asynchronous state machine ahead. So drop the BLKDEV_IFL_WAIT flag that is always specified when calling blkdev_issue_* and also remove the now unused flags argument to blkdev_issue_flush and blkdev_issue_zeroout. For blkdev_issue_discard we need to keep it for the secure discard flag, which gains a more descriptive name and loses the bitops vs flag confusion.

2010-03-30include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking ↵Tejun Heo
implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being included when building most .c files. percpu.h includes slab.h which in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies. percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed. Prepare for this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those headers directly instead of assuming availability. As this conversion needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is used as the basis of conversion. http://userweb.kernel.org/~tj/misc/slabh-sweep.py The script does the followings. * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that only the necessary includes are there. ie. if only gfp is used, gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h. * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms to its surrounding. It's put in the include block which contains core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered - alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there doesn't seem to be any matching order. * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the file. The conversion was done in the following steps. 1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h and ~3000 slab.h inclusions. The script emitted errors for ~400 files. 2. Each error was manually checked. Some didn't need the inclusion, some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or embedding .c file was more appropriate for others. This step added inclusions to around 150 files. 3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits from #2 to make sure no file was left behind. 4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed. e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually. 5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell. Most gfp.h inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros. Each slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as necessary. 6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h. 7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures were fixed. CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq). * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config. * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig * ia64 SMP allmodconfig * s390 SMP allmodconfig * alpha SMP allmodconfig * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig 8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as a separate patch and serve as bisection point. Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step 6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch. If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of the specific arch.

2009-12-03block: Allow devices to indicate whether discarded blocks are zeroedMartin K. Petersen
The discard ioctl is used by mkfs utilities to clear a block device prior to putting metadata down. However, not all devices return zeroed blocks after a discard. Some drives return stale data, potentially containing old superblocks. It is therefore important to know whether discarded blocks are properly zeroed. Both ATA and SCSI drives have configuration bits that indicate whether zeroes are returned after a discard operation. Implement a block level interface that allows this information to be bubbled up the stack and queried via a new block device ioctl. Signed-off-by: Martin K.

2009-09-14block: use blkdev_issue_discard in blk_ioctl_discardChristoph Hellwig
blk_ioctl_discard duplicates large amounts of code from blkdev_issue_discard, the only difference between the two is that blkdev_issue_discard needs to send a barrier discard request and blk_ioctl_discard a non-barrier one, and blk_ioctl_discard needs to wait on the request. To facilitates this add a flags argument to blkdev_issue_discard to control both aspects of the behaviour. This will be very useful later on for using the waiting funcitonality for other callers.

2009-05-22block: Do away with the notion of hardsect_sizeMartin K. Petersen
Until now we have had a 1:1 mapping between storage device physical block size and the logical block sized used when addressing the device. With SATA 4KB drives coming out that will no longer be the case. The sector size will be 4KB but the logical block size will remain 512-bytes. Hence we need to distinguish between the physical block size and the logical ditto. This patch renames hardsect_size to logical_block_size. Signed-off-by: Martin K.

2008-10-21[PATCH] beginning of methods conversionAl Viro
To keep the size of changesets sane we split the switch by drivers; to keep the damn thing bisectable we do the following: 1) rename the affected methods, add ones with correct prototypes, make (few) callers handle both. That's this changeset. 2) for each driver convert to new methods. *ALL* drivers are converted in this series. 3) kill the old (renamed) methods. Note that it _is_ a flagday; all in-tree drivers are converted and by the end of this series no trace of old methods remain. The only reason why we do that this way is to keep the damn thing bisectable and allow per-driver debugging if anything goes wrong. New methods: open(bdev, mode) release(disk, mode) ioctl(bdev, mode, cmd, arg) /* Called without BKL */ compat_ioctl(bdev, mode, cmd, arg) locked_ioctl(bdev, mode, cmd, arg) /* Called with BKL, legacy */ Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

2008-10-09block: make partition array dynamicTejun Heo
disk->__part used to be statically allocated to the maximum possible number of partitions. This patch makes partition array allocation dynamic. The added overhead is minimal as only real change is one memory dereference changed to RCU one. This saves both a bit of memory and cpu cycles iterating through unoccupied slots and makes increasing partition limit easier.

2008-10-09block: introduce partition 0Tejun Heo
genhd and partition code handled disk and partitions separately. All information about the whole disk was in struct genhd and partitions in struct hd_struct. However, the whole disk (part0) and other partitions have a lot in common and the data structures end up having good number of common fields and thus separate code paths doing the same thing. Also, the partition array was indexed by partno - 1 which gets pretty confusing at times. This patch introduces partition 0 and makes the partition array indexed by partno. Following patches will unify the handling of disk and parts piece-by-piece. This patch also implements disk_partitionable() which tests whether a disk is partitionable. With coming dynamic partition array change, the most common usage of disk_max_parts() will be testing whether a disk is partitionable and the number of max partitions will become much less important.

2008-10-09block: fix disk->part[] dereferencing raceTejun Heo
disk->part[] is protected by its matching bdev's lock. However, non-critical accesses like collecting stats and printing out sysfs and proc information used to be performed without any locking. As partitions can come and go dynamically, partitions can go away underneath those non-critical accesses. As some of those accesses are writes, this theoretically can lead to silent corruption. This patch fixes the race by using RCU for the partition array and dev reference counter to hold partitions. * Rename disk->part[] to disk->__part[] to make sure no one outside genhd layer proper accesses it directly. * Use RCU for disk->__part[] dereferencing. * Implement disk_{get|put}_part() which can be used to get and put partitions from gendisk respectively. * Iterators are implemented to help iterate through all partitions safely. * Functions which require RCU readlock are marked with _rcu suffix. * Use disk_put_part() in __blkdev_put() instead of directly putting the contained kobject.

2008-10-09block: don't depend on consecutive minor spaceTejun Heo
* Implement disk_devt() and part_devt() and use them to directly access devt instead of computing it from ->major and ->first_minor. Note that all references to ->major and ->first_minor outside of block layer is used to determine devt of the disk (the part0) and as ->major and ->first_minor will continue to represent devt for the disk, converting these users aren't strictly necessary. However, convert them for consistency. * Implement disk_max_parts() to avoid directly deferencing genhd->minors. * Update bdget_disk() such that it doesn't assume consecutive minor space. * Move devt computation from register_disk() to add_disk() and make it the only one (all other usages use the initially determined value). These changes clean up the code and will help disk->part dereference fix and extended block device numbers. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2008-10-09block: make variable and argument names more consistentTejun Heo
In hd_struct, @partno is used to denote partition number and a number of other places use @part to denote hd_struct. Functions use @part and @index instead. This causes confusion and makes it difficult to use consistent variable names for hd_struct. Always use @partno if a variable represents partition number. Also, print out functions use @f or @part for seq_file argument. Use @seqf uniformly instead. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2008-10-09block: update add_partition() error handlingTejun Heo
d805dda4 tried to fix error case handling in add_partition() but had a few problems. * disk->part[] entry is set early and left dangling if operation fails. * Once device initialized, the last put_device() is responsible for freeing all the resources. The failure path freed part_stats and p regardless of put_device() causing double free. * holders subdir holds reference to the disk device, so failure path should remove it to release resources properly which was missing. This patch fixes the above problems and while at it move partition slot busy check into add_partition() for completeness and inlines holders subdirectory creation. Using separate function for it just obfuscates the code. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Abdel Benamrouche <draconux@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
