2009-11-26block: add helpers to run flush_dcache_page() against a bio and a request's ↵Ilya Loginov
pages Mtdblock driver doesn't call flush_dcache_page for pages in request. So, this causes problems on architectures where the icache doesn't fill from the dcache or with dcache aliases. The patch fixes this. The ARCH_IMPLEMENTS_FLUSH_DCACHE_PAGE symbol was introduced to avoid pointless empty cache-thrashing loops on architectures for which flush_dcache_page() is a no-op. Every architecture was provided with this flush pages on architectires where ARCH_IMPLEMENTS_FLUSH_DCACHE_PAGE is equal 1 or do nothing otherwise. See "fix mtd_blkdevs problem with caches on some architectures" discussion on LKML for more information.

2009-10-06block: Seperate read and write statistics of in_flight requests v2Nikanth Karthikesan
Commit a9327cac440be4d8333bba975cbbf76045096275 added seperate read and write statistics of in_flight requests. And exported the number of read and write requests in progress seperately through sysfs. But Corrado Zoccolo <czoccolo@gmail.com> reported getting strange output from "iostat -kx 2". Global values for service time and utilization were garbage. For interval values, utilization was always 100%, and service time is higher than normal. So this was reverted by commit 0f78ab9899e9d6acb09d5465def618704255963b The problem was in part_round_stats_single(), I missed the following: if (now == part->stamp) return; - if (part->in_flight) { + if (part_in_flight(part)) { __part_stat_add(cpu, part, time_in_queue, part_in_flight(part) * (now - part->stamp)); __part_stat_add(cpu, part, io_ticks, (now - part->stamp)); With this chunk included, the reported regression gets fixed.

2009-10-01block: allow large discard requestsChristoph Hellwig
Currently we set the bio size to the byte equivalent of the blocks to be trimmed when submitting the initial DISCARD ioctl. That means it is subject to the max_hw_sectors limitation of the HBA which is much lower than the size of a DISCARD request we can support. Add a separate max_discard_sectors tunable to limit the size for discard requests. We limit the max discard request size in bytes to 32bit as that is the limit for bio->bi_size. This could be much larger if we had a way to pass that information through the block layer. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2009-10-01block: use normal I/O path for discard requestsChristoph Hellwig
prepare_discard_fn() was being called in a place where memory allocation was effectively impossible. This makes it inappropriate for all but the most trivial translations of Linux's DISCARD operation to the block command set. Additionally adding a payload there makes the ownership of the bio backing unclear as it's now allocated by the device driver and not the submitter as usual. It is replaced with QUEUE_FLAG_DISCARD which is used to indicate whether the queue supports discard operations or not. blkdev_issue_discard now allocates a one-page, sector-length payload which is the right thing for the common ATA and SCSI implementations. The mtd implementation of prepare_discard_fn() is replaced with simply checking for the request being a discard. Largely based on a previous patch from Matthew Wilcox <matthew@wil.cx> which did the prepare_discard_fn but not the different payload allocation yet.

2009-09-14Seperate read and write statistics of in_flight requestsNikanth Karthikesan
Currently, there is a single in_flight counter measuring the number of requests in the request_queue. But some monitoring tools would like to know how many read requests and write requests are in progress. Split the current in_flight counter into two seperate counters for read and write. This information is exported as a sysfs attribute, as changing the currently available stat files would break the existing tools.

2009-09-11block: improve queue_should_plug() by looking at IO depthsJens Axboe
Instead of just checking whether this device uses block layer tagging, we can improve the detection by looking at the maximum queue depth it has reached. If that crosses 4, then deem it a queuing device. This is important on high IOPS devices, since plugging hurts the performance there (it can be as much as 10-15% of the sys time).

2009-09-11block: implement mixed merge of different failfast requestsTejun Heo
Failfast has characteristics from other attributes. When issuing, executing and successuflly completing requests, failfast doesn't make any difference. It only affects how a request is handled on failure. Allowing requests with different failfast settings to be merged cause normal IOs to fail prematurely while not allowing has performance penalties as failfast is used for read aheads which are likely to be located near in-flight or to-be-issued normal IOs. This patch introduces the concept of 'mixed merge'. A request is a mixed merge if it is merge of segments which require different handling on failure. Currently the only mixable attributes are failfast ones (or lack thereof). When a bio with different failfast settings is added to an existing request or requests of different failfast settings are merged, the merged request is marked mixed. Each bio carries failfast settings and the request always tracks failfast state of the first bio. When the request fails, blk_rq_err_bytes() can be used to determine how many bytes can be safely failed without crossing into an area which requires further retrials. This allows request merging regardless of failfast settings while keeping the failure handling correct. This patch only implements mixed merge but doesn't enable it. The next one will update SCSI to make use of mixed merge. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Niel Lambrechts <niel.lambrechts@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>

Drop the code and comment from blk_rq_bio_prep(). * Define REQ_FAILFAST_MASK which is OR of all FAILFAST bits and simplify FAILFAST flags handling in init_request_from_bio().

2009-06-11block: add request clone interface (v2)Kiyoshi Ueda
This patch adds the following 2 interfaces for request-stacking drivers: - blk_rq_prep_clone(struct request *clone, struct request *orig, struct bio_set *bs, gfp_t gfp_mask, int (*bio_ctr)(struct bio *, struct bio*, void *), void *data) * Clones bios in the original request to the clone request (bio_ctr is called for each cloned bios.) * Copies attributes of the original request to the clone request. The actual data parts (e.g. ->cmd, ->buffer, ->sense) are not copied. - blk_rq_unprep_clone(struct request *clone) * Frees cloned bios from the clone request. Request stacking drivers (e.g. request-based dm) need to make a clone request for a submitted request and dispatch it to other devices. To allocate request for the clone, request stacking drivers may not be able to use blk_get_request() because the allocation may be done in an irq-disabled context. So blk_rq_prep_clone() takes a request allocated by the caller as an argument. For each clone bio in the clone request, request stacking drivers should be able to set up their own completion handler. So blk_rq_prep_clone() takes a callback function which is called for each clone bio, and a pointer for private data which is passed to the callback. NOTE: blk_rq_prep_clone() doesn't copy any actual data of the original request. Pages are shared between original bios and cloned bios. So caller must not complete the original request before the clone request.

2009-06-09tracing/events: convert block trace points to TRACE_EVENT()Li Zefan
TRACE_EVENT is a more generic way to define tracepoints. Doing so adds these new capabilities to this tracepoint: - zero-copy and per-cpu splice() tracing - binary tracing without printf overhead - structured logging records exposed under /debug/tracing/events - trace events embedded in function tracer output and other plugins - user-defined, per tracepoint filter expressions ... Cons: - no dev_t info for the output of plug, unplug_timer and unplug_io events. no dev_t info for getrq and sleeprq events if bio == NULL. no dev_t info for rq_abort,...,rq_requeue events if rq->rq_disk == NULL. This is mainly because we can't get the deivce from a request queue. But this may change in the future. - A packet command is converted to a string in TP_assign, not TP_print. While blktrace do the convertion just before output. Since pc requests should be rather rare, this is not a big issue. - In blktrace, an event can have 2 different print formats, but a TRACE_EVENT has a unique format, which means we have some unused data in a trace entry. The overhead is minimized by using __dynamic_array() instead of __array(). I've benchmarked the ioctl blktrace vs the splice based TRACE_EVENT tracing: dd dd + ioctl blktrace dd + TRACE_EVENT (splice) 1 7.36s, 42.7 MB/s 7.50s, 42.0 MB/s 7.41s, 42.5 MB/s 2 7.43s, 42.3 MB/s 7.48s, 42.1 MB/s 7.43s, 42.4 MB/s 3 7.38s, 42.6 MB/s 7.45s, 42.2 MB/s 7.41s, 42.5 MB/s So the overhead of tracing is very small, and no regression when using those trace events vs blktrace. And the binary output of TRACE_EVENT is much smaller than blktrace: # ls -l -h -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8.8M 06-09 13:24 sda.blktrace.0 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 195K 06-09 13:24 sda.blktrace.1 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2.7M 06-09 13:25 trace_splice.out Following are some comparisons between TRACE_EVENT and blktrace: plug: kjournald-480 [000] 303.084981: block_plug: [kjournald] kjournald-480 [000] 303.084981: 8,0 P N [kjournald] unplug_io: kblockd/0-118 [000] 300.052973: block_unplug_io: [kblockd/0] 1 kblockd/0-118 [000] 300.052974: 8,0 U N [kblockd/0] 1 remap: kjournald-480 [000] 303.085042: block_remap: 8,0 W 102736992 + 8 <- (8,8) 33384 kjournald-480 [000] 303.085043: 8,0 A W 102736992 + 8 <- (8,8) 33384 bio_backmerge: kjournald-480 [000] 303.085086: block_bio_backmerge: 8,0 W 102737032 + 8 [kjournald] kjournald-480 [000] 303.085086: 8,0 M W 102737032 + 8 [kjournald] getrq: kjournald-480 [000] 303.084974: block_getrq: 8,0 W 102736984 + 8 [kjournald] kjournald-480 [000] 303.084975: 8,0 G W 102736984 + 8 [kjournald] bash-2066 [001] 1072.953770: 8,0 G N [bash] bash-2066 [001] 1072.953773: block_getrq: 0,0 N 0 + 0 [bash] rq_complete: konsole-2065 [001] 300.053184: block_rq_complete: 8,0 W () 103669040 + 16 [0] konsole-2065 [001] 300.053191: 8,0 C W 103669040 + 16 [0] ksoftirqd/1-7 [001] 1072.953811: 8,0 C N (5a 00 08 00 00 00 00 00 24 00) [0] ksoftirqd/1-7 [001] 1072.953813: block_rq_complete: 0,0 N (5a 00 08 00 00 00 00 00 24 00) 0 + 0 [0] rq_insert: kjournald-480 [000] 303.084985: block_rq_insert: 8,0 W 0 () 102736984 + 8 [kjournald] kjournald-480 [000] 303.084986: 8,0 I W 102736984 + 8 [kjournald] Changelog from v2 -> v3: - use the newly introduced __dynamic_array().

Doing a bit of torture testing, I ran across a BUG in the block subsystem (at blk-core.c:2048): the test for if the request is queued. It turns out the trigger was a BLKPREP_KILL coming out of the SCSI prep function. Currently for BLKPREP_KILL requests, we send them straight into __blk_end_request_all() with an error, but they've never been dequeued, so they trip the bug.

Unfortunately, this checks whether req->queuelist is empty. This list is doing double duty both as the queue list and the tag list, so tagged requests come in here with this not empty and boom (the tag list is emptied by blk_queue_end_tag() lower down). Fix this by moving the BUG_ON to below the end tag we also seem vulnerable to this in blk_requeue_request() as well. I think all uses of blk_queued_rq() need auditing because the check is clearly wrong in the tagged case.

2009-05-19block: set rq->resid_len to blk_rq_bytes() on issueTejun Heo
In commit c3a4d78c580de4edc9ef0f7c59812fb02ceb037f, while introducing rq->resid_len, the default value of residue count was changed from full count to zero. The conversion was done under the assumption that when a request fails residue count wasn't defined. However, Boaz and James pointed out that this wasn't true and the residue count should be preserved for failed requests too. This patchset restores the original behavior by setting rq->resid_len to blk_rq_bytes(rq) on request start and restoring explicit clearing in affected drivers. While at it, take advantage of the fact that rq->resid_len is set to full count where applicable. * ide-cd: rq->resid_len cleared on pc success * mptsas: req->resid_len cleared on success * sas_expander: rsp/req->resid_len cleared on success * mpt2sas_transport: req->resid_len cleared on success * ide-cd, ide-tape, mptsas, sas_host_smp, mpt2sas_transport, ub: take advantage of initial full count to simplify code Boaz Harrosh spotted bug in resid_len initialization.

Current bio_vec array index out-of-bounds test within __end_that_request_first() does not seem correct. It checks bio->bi_idx against bio->bi_vcnt, but the subsequent code uses idx (which is, bio->bi_idx + next_idx) as the array index into bio_vec array. This means that the test really make sense only at the first iteration of !(nr_bytes >=bio->bi_size) case (when next_idx == zero). Fix this by replacing bio->bi_idx with idx.

2009-05-11block: implement and enforce request peek/start/fetchTejun Heo
Till now block layer allowed two separate modes of request execution. A request is always acquired from the request queue via elv_next_request(). After that, drivers are free to either dequeue it or process it without dequeueing. Dequeue allows elv_next_request() to return the next request so that multiple requests can be in flight. Executing requests without dequeueing has its merits mostly in allowing drivers for simpler devices which can't do sg to deal with segments only without considering request boundary. However, the benefit this brings is dubious and declining while the cost of the API ambiguity is increasing. Segment based drivers are usually for very old or limited devices and as converting to dequeueing model isn't difficult, it doesn't justify the API overhead it puts on block layer and its more modern users. Previous patches converted all block low level drivers to dequeueing model. This patch completes the API transition by... * renaming elv_next_request() to blk_peek_request() * renaming blkdev_dequeue_request() to blk_start_request() * adding blk_fetch_request() which is combination of peek and start * disallowing completion of queued (not started) requests * applying new API to all LLDs Renamings are for consistency and to break out of tree code so that it's apparent that out of tree drivers need updating.

2009-05-11block: hide request sector and data_lenTejun Heo
Block low level drivers for some reason have been pretty good at abusing block layer API. Especially struct request's fields tend to get violated in all possible ways. Make it clear that low level drivers MUST NOT access or manipulate rq->sector and rq->data_len directly by prefixing them with double underscores. This change is also necessary to break build of out-of-tree codes which assume the previous block API where internal fields can be manipulated and rq->data_len carries residual count on completion.

2009-05-11block: drop request->hard_* and *nr_sectorsTejun Heo
struct request has had a few different ways to represent some properties of a request. ->hard_* represent block layer's view of the request progress (completion cursor) and the ones without the prefix are supposed to represent the issue cursor and allowed to be updated as necessary by the low level drivers. The thing is that as block layer supports partial completion, the two cursors really aren't necessary and only cause confusion. In addition, manual management of request detail from low level drivers is cumbersome and error-prone at the very least. Another interesting duplicate fields are rq->[hard_]nr_sectors and rq->{hard_cur|current}_nr_sectors against rq->data_len and rq->bio->bi_size. This is more convoluted than the hard_ case. rq->[hard_]nr_sectors are initialized for requests with bio but blk_rq_bytes() uses it only for !pc requests. rq->data_len is initialized for all request but blk_rq_bytes() uses it only for pc requests. This causes good amount of confusion throughout block layer and its drivers and determining the request length has been a bit of black magic which may or may not work depending on circumstances and what the specific LLD is actually doing. rq->{hard_cur|current}_nr_sectors represent the number of sectors in the contiguous data area at the front. This is mainly used by drivers which transfers data by walking request segment-by-segment. This value always equals rq->bio->bi_size >> 9. However, data length for pc requests may not be multiple of 512 bytes and using this field becomes a bit confusing. In general, having multiple fields to represent the same property leads only to confusion and subtle bugs. With recent block low level driver cleanups, no driver is accessing or manipulating these duplicate fields directly. Drop all the duplicates. Now rq->sector means the current sector, rq->data_len the current total length and rq->bio->bi_size the current segment length. Everything else is defined in terms of these three and available only through accessors. * blk_recalc_rq_sectors() is collapsed into blk_update_request() and now handles pc and fs requests equally other than rq->sector update. This means that now pc requests can use partial completion too (no in-kernel user yet tho). * bio_cur_sectors() is replaced with bio_cur_bytes() as block layer now uses byte count as the primary data length. * blk_rq_pos() is now guranteed to be always correct. In-block users converted. * blk_rq_bytes() is now guaranteed to be always valid as is blk_rq_sectors(). In-block users converted. * blk_rq_sectors() is now guaranteed to equal blk_rq_bytes() >> 9. More convenient one is used. * blk_rq_bytes() and blk_rq_cur_bytes() are now inlined and take const pointer to request.
