2013-03-19xen-blkfront: remove frame list from blk_shadowRoger Pau Monne
We already have the frame (pfn of the grant page) stored inside struct grant, so there's no need to keep an aditional list of mapped frames for a specific request. This reduces memory usage in blkfront.

2013-03-19xen-blkfront: pre-allocate pages for requestsRoger Pau Monne
This prevents us from having to call alloc_page while we are preparing the request. Since blkfront was calling alloc_page with a spinlock held we used GFP_ATOMIC, which can fail if we are requesting a lot of pages since it is using the emergency memory pools. Allocating all the pages at init prevents us from having to call alloc_page, thus preventing possible failures.

2013-03-19xen-blkfront: switch from llist to listRoger Pau Monne
The git commit f84adf4921ae3115502f44ff467b04bf2f88cf04 (xen-blkfront: drop the use of llist_for_each_entry_safe) was a stop-gate to fix a GCC4.1 bug. The appropiate way is to actually use an list instead of using an llist. As such this patch replaces the usage of llist with an list. Since we always manipulate the list while holding the io_lock, there's no need for additional locking (llist used previously is safe to use concurrently without additional locking).

2013-02-19xen-blkfront: drop the use of llist_for_each_entry_safeKonrad Rzeszutek Wilk
Replace llist_for_each_entry_safe with a while loop. llist_for_each_entry_safe can trigger a bug in GCC 4.1, so it's best to remove it and use a while loop and do the deletion manually. Specifically this bug can be triggered by hot-unplugging a disk, either by doing xm block-detach or by save/restore cycle.

2012-12-17xen-blkfront: handle bvecs with partial dataRoger Pau Monne
Currently blkfront fails to handle cases in blkif_completion like the following: 1st loop in rq_for_each_segment * bv_offset: 3584 * bv_len: 512 * offset += bv_len * i: 0 2nd loop: * bv_offset: 0 * bv_len: 512 * i: 0 In the second loop i should be 1, since we assume we only wanted to read a part of the previous page. This patches fixes this cases where only a part of the shared page is read, and blkif_completion assumes that if the bv_offset of a bvec is less than the previous bv_offset plus the bv_size we have to switch to the next shared page.

2012-10-30xen/blkback: Persistent grant maps for xen blk driversRoger Pau Monne
This patch implements persistent grants for the xen-blk{front,back} mechanism. The effect of this change is to reduce the number of unmap operations performed, since they cause a (costly) TLB shootdown. This allows the I/O performance to scale better when a large number of VMs are performing I/O. Previously, the blkfront driver was supplied a bvec[] from the request queue. This was granted to dom0; dom0 performed the I/O and wrote directly into the grant-mapped memory and unmapped it; blkfront then removed foreign access for that grant. The cost of unmapping scales badly with the number of CPUs in Dom0. An experiment showed that when Dom0 has 24 VCPUs, and guests are performing parallel I/O to a ramdisk, the IPIs from performing unmap's is a bottleneck at 5 guests (at which point 650,000 IOPS are being performed in total). If more than 5 guests are used, the performance declines. By 10 guests, only 400,000 IOPS are being performed. This patch improves performance by only unmapping when the connection between blkfront and back is broken. On startup blkfront notifies blkback that it is using persistent grants, and blkback will do the same. If blkback is not capable of persistent mapping, blkfront will still use the same grants, since it is compatible with the previous protocol, and simplifies the code complexity in blkfront. To perform a read, in persistent mode, blkfront uses a separate pool of pages that it maps to dom0. When a request comes in, blkfront transmutes the request so that blkback will write into one of these free pages. Blkback keeps note of which grefs it has already mapped. When a new ring request comes to blkback, it looks to see if it has already mapped that page. If so, it will not map it again. If the page hasn't been previously mapped, it is mapped now, and a record is kept of this mapping. Blkback proceeds as usual. When blkfront is notified that blkback has completed a request, it memcpy's from the shared memory, into the bvec supplied. A record that the {gref, page} tuple is mapped, and not inflight is kept. Writes are similar, except that the memcpy is peformed from the supplied bvecs, into the shared pages, before the request is put onto the ring. Blkback stores a mapping of grefs=>{page mapped to by gref} in a red-black tree. As the grefs are not known apriori, and provide no guarantees on their ordering, we have to perform a search through this tree to find the page, for every gref we receive. This operation takes O(log n) time in the worst case. In blkfront grants are stored using a single linked list. The maximum number of grants that blkback will persistenly map is currently set to RING_SIZE * BLKIF_MAX_SEGMENTS_PER_REQUEST, to prevent a malicios guest from attempting a DoS, by supplying fresh grefs, causing the Dom0 kernel to map excessively. If a guest is using persistent grants and exceeds the maximum number of grants to map persistenly the newly passed grefs will be mapped and unmaped. Using this approach, we can have requests that mix persistent and non-persistent grants, and we need to handle them correctly. This allows us to set the maximum number of persistent grants to a lower value than RING_SIZE * BLKIF_MAX_SEGMENTS_PER_REQUEST, although setting it will lead to unpredictable performance. In writing this patch, the question arrises as to if the additional cost of performing memcpys in the guest (to/from the pool of granted pages) outweigh the gains of not performing TLB shootdowns. The answer to that question is `no'. There appears to be very little, if any additional cost to the guest of using persistent grants. There is perhaps a small saving, from the reduced number of hypercalls performed in granting, and ending foreign access.

2012-06-12xen/blkfront: Add WARN to deal with misbehaving backends.Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk
Part of the ring structure is the 'id' field which is under control of the frontend. The frontend stamps it with "some" value (this some in this implementation being a value less than BLK_RING_SIZE), and when it gets a response expects said value to be in the response structure. We have a check for the id field when spolling new requests but not when de-spolling responses. We also add an extra check in add_id_to_freelist to make sure that the 'struct request' was not NULL - as we cannot pass a NULL to __blk_end_request_all, otherwise that crashes (and all the operations that the response is dealing with end up with __blk_end_request_all). Lastly we also print the name of the operation that failed.

This patch moves the global blkif_io_lock to the per-device structure. The spinlock seems to exists for two reasons: to disable IRQs when in the interrupt handlers for blkfront, and to protect the blkfront VBDs when a detachment is requested. Having a global blkif_io_lock doesn't make sense given the use case, and it drastically hinders performance due to contention. All VBDs with pending IOs have to take the lock in order to get work done, which serializes everything pretty badly.

The 'name', 'owner', and 'mod_name' members are redundant with the identically named fields in the 'driver' sub-structure. Rather than switching each instance to specify these fields explicitly, introduce a macro to simplify this. Eliminate further redundancy by allowing the drvname argument to DEFINE_XENBUS_DRIVER() to be blank (in which case the first entry from the ID table will be used for .driver.name). Also eliminate the questionable xenbus_register_{back,front}end() wrappers - their sole remaining purpose was the checking of the 'owner' field, proper setting of which shouldn't be an issue anymore when the macro gets used. v2: Restore DRV_NAME for the driver name in xen-pciback.

2011-10-13xen-blkfront: If no barrier or flush is supported, use invalid operation.Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk
Guard against issuing BLKIF_OP_WRITE_BARRIER or BLKIF_OP_FLUSH_CACHE by checking whether we successfully negotiated with the backend. The negotiation with the backend also sets the q->flush_flags which fortunately for us is also used when submitting an bio to us. If we don't support barriers or flushes it would be set to zero so we should never end up having to deal with REQ_FLUSH | REQ_FUA. However, other third party implementations of __make_request that might be stacked on top of us might not be so smart, so lets fix this up.

2011-10-13xen-blkfront: fix a deadlock while handling discard responseLi Dongyang
When we get -EOPNOTSUPP response for a discard request, we will clear the discard flag on the request queue so we won't attempt to send discard requests to backend again, and this should be protected under rq->queue_lock. However, when we setup the request queue, we pass blkif_io_lock to blk_init_queue so rq->queue_lock is blkif_io_lock indeed, and this lock is already taken when we are in blkif_interrpt, so remove the spin_lock/spin_unlock when we clear the discard flag or we will end up with deadlock here Signed-off-by: Li Dongyang <lidongyang@novell.com> [v1: Updated description a bit and removed comment from source] Signed-off-by: Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk <konrad.wilk@oracle.com>

2011-07-14xen-blkfront: Drop name and minor adjustments for emulated scsi devicesStefan Bader
These were intended to avoid the namespace clash when representing emulated IDE and SCSI devices. However that seems to confuse users more than expected (a disk defined as sda becomes xvde). So for now go back to the scheme which does no adjustments. This will break when mixing IDE and SCSI names in the configuration of guests but should be by now expected.

2011-05-12xen-blkfront: Introduce BLKIF_OP_FLUSH_DISKCACHE support.Konrad Rzeszutek Wilk
If the backend supports the 'feature-flush-cache' mode, use that instead of the 'feature-barrier' support. Currently there are three backends that support the 'feature-flush-cache' mode: NetBSD, Solaris and Linux kernel. The 'flush' option is much light-weight version than the 'barrier' support so lets try to use as there are no filesystems in the kernel that use full barriers anymore.

2011-02-25xen-blkfront: handle Xen major numbers other than XENVBDStefano Stabellini
This patch makes sure blkfront handles correctly virtual device numbers corresponding to Xen emulated IDE and SCSI disks: in those cases blkfront translates the major number to XENVBD and the minor number to a low xvd minor. Note: this behaviour is different from what old xenlinux PV guests used to do: they used to steal an IDE or SCSI major number and use it instead.

2010-11-10block: remove REQ_HARDBARRIERChristoph Hellwig
REQ_HARDBARRIER is dead now, so remove the leftovers. What's left at this point is: - various checks inside the block layer. - sanity checks in bio based drivers. - now unused bio_empty_barrier helper. - Xen blockfront use of BLKIF_OP_WRITE_BARRIER - it's dead for a while, but Xen really needs to sort out it's barrier situaton. - setting of ordered tags in uas - dead code copied from old scsi drivers. - scsi different retry for barriers - it's dead and should have been removed when flushes were converted to FS requests. - blktrace handling of barriers - removed.
