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.

2008-10-09block: allow deleting zero length partitionTejun Heo
delete_partition() was noop for zero length partition. As the addition code allows creating zero lenght partition and deletion is assumed to always succeed, this causes memory leak for zero length partitions. Allow zero length partitions to end their meaningless lives. While at it, allow deleting zero lenght partition via BLKPG_DEL_PARTITION ioctl too.

2008-10-09Allow elevators to sort/merge discard requestsDavid Woodhouse
But blkdev_issue_discard() still emits requests which are interpreted as soft barriers, because naïve callers might otherwise issue subsequent writes to those same sectors, which might cross on the queue (if they're reallocated quickly enough). Callers still _can_ issue non-barrier discard requests, but they have to take care of queue ordering for themselves.

We may well want mkfs tools to use this to mark the whole device as unwanted before they format it, for example. The ioctl takes a pair of uint64_ts, which are start offset and length in _bytes_.

2007-02-10[PARTITION]: Add whole_disk attribute.Fabio Massimo Di Nitto
Some partitioning systems create special partitions that span the entire disk. One example are Sun partitions, and this whole-disk partition exists to tell the firmware the extent of the entire device so it can load the boot block and do other things. Such partitions should not be treated as normal partitions, because all the other partitions overlap this whole-disk one. So we'd see multiple instances of the same UUID etc. which we do not want. udev and friends can thus search for this 'whole_disk' attribute and use it to decide to ignore the partition.
