2010-02-26block: Consolidate phys_segment and hw_segment limitsMartin K. Petersen
Except for SCSI no device drivers distinguish between physical and hardware segment limits. Consolidate the two into a single segment limit. Signed-off-by: Martin K. Petersen <martin.petersen@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2010-02-26block: Rename blk_queue_max_sectors to blk_queue_max_hw_sectorsMartin K. Petersen
The block layer calling convention is blk_queue_<limit name>. blk_queue_max_sectors predates this practice, leading to some confusion. Rename the function to appropriately reflect that its intended use is to set max_hw_sectors. Also introduce a temporary wrapper for backwards compability. This can be removed after the merge window is closed. Signed-off-by: Martin K. Petersen <martin.petersen@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>

2010-01-11block: Correct handling of bottom device misaligmentMartin K. Petersen
The top device misalignment flag would not be set if the added bottom device was already misaligned as opposed to causing a stacking failure.

2009-12-29block: Fix incorrect alignment offset reporting and update documentationMartin K. Petersen
queue_sector_alignment_offset returned the wrong value which caused partitions to report an incorrect alignment_offset.

2009-12-16block: temporarily disable discard granularityJens Axboe
Commit 86b37281411cf1e9bc0a6b5406c45edb7bd9ea5d adds a check for misaligned stacking offsets, but it's buggy since the defaults are 0. Hence all dm devices that pass in a non-zero starting offset will be marked as misaligned amd dm will complain. A real fix is coming, in the mean time disable the discard granularity check so that users don't worry about dm reporting about misaligned devices. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
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.

2009-10-01block: 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.

2009-05-22block: Export I/O topology for block devices and partitionsMartin K. Petersen
To support devices with physical block sizes bigger than 512 bytes we need to ensure proper alignment. This patch adds support for exposing I/O topology characteristics as devices are stacked. logical_block_size is the smallest unit the device can address. physical_block_size indicates the smallest I/O the device can write without incurring a read-modify-write penalty. The io_min parameter is the smallest preferred I/O size reported by the device. In many cases this is the same as the physical block size. However, the io_min parameter can be scaled up when stacking (RAID5 chunk size > physical block size). The io_opt characteristic indicates the optimal I/O size reported by the device. This is usually the stripe width for arrays. The alignment_offset parameter indicates the number of bytes the start of the device/partition is offset from the device's natural alignment. Partition tools and MD/DM utilities can use this to pad their offsets so filesystems start on proper boundaries. Signed-off-by: Martin K.

2009-05-22block: Do away with the notion of hardsect_sizeMartin K. Petersen

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.

2009-04-22block: fix queue bounce limit settingTejun Heo
Impact: don't set GFP_DMA in q->bounce_gfp unnecessarily All DMA address limits are expressed in terms of the last addressable unit (byte or page) instead of one plus that. However, when determining bounce_gfp for 64bit machines in blk_queue_bounce_limit(), it compares the specified limit against 0x100000000UL to determine whether it's below 4G ending up falsely setting GFP_DMA in q->bounce_gfp. As DMA zone is very small on x86_64, this makes larger SG_IO transfers very eager to trigger OOM killer. Fix it.

2008-12-29block: use min_not_zero in blk_queue_stack_limitsFUJITA Tomonori
zero is invalid for max_phys_segments, max_hw_segments, and max_segment_size. It's better to use use min_not_zero instead of min. min() works though (because the commit 0e435ac makes sure that these values are set to the default values, non zero, if a queue is initialized properly). With this patch, blk_queue_stack_limits does the almost same thing that dm's combine_restrictions_low() does. I think that it's easy to remove dm's combine_restrictions_low.

2008-12-03block: fix setting of max_segment_size and seg_boundary maskMilan Broz
Fix setting of max_segment_size and seg_boundary mask for stacked md/dm devices. When stacking devices (LVM over MD over SCSI) some of the request queue parameters are not set up correctly in some cases by default, namely max_segment_size and and seg_boundary mask. If you create MD device over SCSI, these attributes are zeroed. Problem become when there is over this mapping next device-mapper mapping - queue attributes are set in DM this way: request_queue max_segment_size seg_boundary_mask SCSI 65536 0xffffffff MD RAID1 0 0 LVM 65536 -1 (64bit) Unfortunately bio_add_page (resp. bio_phys_segments) calculates number of physical segments according to these parameters. During the generic_make_request() is segment cout recalculated and can increase bio->bi_phys_segments count over the allowed limit. (After bio_clone() in stack operation.) Thi is specially problem in CCISS driver, where it produce OOPS here BUG_ON(creq->nr_phys_segments > MAXSGENTRIES); (MAXSEGENTRIES is 31 by default.) Sometimes even this command is enough to cause oops: dd iflag=direct if=/dev/<vg>/<lv> of=/dev/null bs=128000 count=10 This command generates bios with 250 sectors, allocated in 32 4k-pages (last page uses only 1024 bytes). For LVM layer, it allocates bio with 31 segments (still OK for CCISS), unfortunatelly on lower layer it is recalculated to 32 segments and this violates CCISS restriction and triggers BUG_ON(). The patch tries to fix it by: * initializing attributes above in queue request constructor blk_queue_make_request() * make sure that blk_queue_stack_limits() inherits setting (DM uses its own function to set the limits because it blk_queue_stack_limits() was introduced later. It should probably switch to use generic stack limit function too.) * sets the default seg_boundary value in one place (blkdev.h) * use this mask as default in DM (instead of -1, which differs in 64bit) Bugs related to this: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=471639 http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8672 Signed-off-by: Milan Broz <mbroz@redhat.com> Reviewed-by: Alasdair G Kergon <agk@redhat.com> Cc: Neil Brown <neilb@suse.de> Cc: FUJITA Tomonori <fujita.tomonori@lab.ntt.co.jp> Cc: Tejun Heo <htejun@gmail.com> Cc: Mike Miller <mike.miller@hp.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>

2008-10-09block: add lld busy state exporting interfaceKiyoshi Ueda
This patch adds an new interface, blk_lld_busy(), to check lld's busy state from the block layer. blk_lld_busy() calls down into low-level drivers for the checking if the drivers set q->lld_busy_fn() using blk_queue_lld_busy(). This resolves a performance problem on request stacking devices below. Some drivers like scsi mid layer stop dispatching request when they detect busy state on its low-level device like host/target/device. It allows other requests to stay in the I/O scheduler's queue for a chance of merging. Request stacking drivers like request-based dm should follow the same logic. However, there is no generic interface for the stacked device to check if the underlying device(s) are busy. If the request stacking driver dispatches and submits requests to the busy underlying device, the requests will stay in the underlying device's queue without a chance of merging. This causes performance problem on burst I/O load. With this patch, busy state of the underlying device is exported via q->lld_busy_fn(). So the request stacking driver can check it and stop dispatching requests if busy. The underlying device driver must return the busy state appropriately: 1: when the device driver can't process requests immediately. 0: when the device driver can process requests immediately, including abnormal situations where the device driver needs to kill all requests.

2008-10-09block: add support for IO CPU affinityJens Axboe
This patch adds support for controlling the IO completion CPU of either all requests on a queue, or on a per-request basis. We export a sysfs variable (rq_affinity) which, if set, migrates completions of requests to the CPU that originally submitted it. A bio helper (bio_set_completion_cpu()) is also added, so that queuers can ask for completion on that specific CPU. In testing, this has been show to cut the system time by as much as 20-40% on synthetic workloads where CPU affinity is desired. This requires a little help from the architecture, so it'll only work as designed for archs that are using the new generic smp helper infrastructure. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>

2008-10-09Add 'discard' request handlingDavid Woodhouse
Some block devices benefit from a hint that they can forget the contents of certain sectors. Add basic support for this to the block core, along with a 'blkdev_issue_discard()' helper function which issues such requests. The caller doesn't get to provide an end_io functio, since blkdev_issue_discard() will automatically split the request up into multiple bios if appropriate. Neither does the function wait for completion -- it's expected that callers won't care about when, or even _if_, the request completes. It's only a hint to the device anyway. By definition, the file system doesn't _care_ about these sectors any more.
