2008-05-02[SCSI] add support for variable length extended commandsBoaz Harrosh
Add support for variable-length, extended, and vendor specific CDBs to scsi-ml. It is now possible for initiators and ULD's to issue these types of commands. LLDs need not change much. All they need is to raise the .max_cmd_len to the longest command they support (see iscsi patch). - clean-up some code paths that did not expect commands to be larger than 16, and change cmd_len members' type to short as char is not enough.

2008-04-29block: no need to initialize rq->cmd with blk_get_requestFUJITA Tomonori
blk_get_request initializes rq->cmd (rq_init does) so the users don't need to do that. The purpose of this patch is to remove sizeof(rq->cmd) and &rq->cmd, as a preparation for large command support, which changes rq->cmd from the static array to a pointer. sizeof(rq->cmd) will not make sense and &rq->cmd won't work.

2008-03-04block: restore the meaning of rq->data_len to the true data lengthFUJITA Tomonori
The meaning of rq->data_len was changed to the length of an allocated buffer from the true data length. It breaks SG_IO friends and bsg. This patch restores the meaning of rq->data_len to the true data length and adds rq->extra_len to store an extended length (due to drain buffer and padding). This patch also removes the code to update bio in blk_rq_map_user introduced by the commit 40b01b9bbdf51ae543a04744283bf2d56c4a6afa. The commit adjusts bio according to memory alignment (queue_dma_alignment). However, memory alignment is NOT padding alignment. This adjustment also breaks SG_IO friends and bsg. Padding alignment needs to be fixed in a proper way (by a separate patch). Signed-off-by: FUJITA Tomonori <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2008-02-19block: add request->raw_data_lenTejun Heo
With padding and draining moved into it, block layer now may extend requests as directed by queue parameters, so now a request has two sizes - the original request size and the extended size which matches the size of area pointed to by bios and later by sgs. The latter size is what lower layers are primarily interested in when allocating, filling up DMA tables and setting up the controller. Both padding and draining extend the data area to accomodate controller characteristics. As any controller which speaks SCSI can handle underflows, feeding larger data area is safe. So, this patch makes the primary data length field, request->data_len, indicate the size of full data area and add a separate length field, request->raw_data_len, for the unmodified request size. The latter is used to report to higher layer (userland) and where the original request size should be fed to the controller or device.

2007-07-16bsg: add a request_queue argument to scsi_cmd_ioctl()FUJITA Tomonori
bsg uses scsi_cmd_ioctl() for some SCSI/sg ioctl commands. scsi_cmd_ioctl() gets a request queue from a gendisk arguement. This prevents bsg being bound to SCSI devices that don't have a gendisk (like OSD). This adds a request_queue argument to scsi_cmd_ioctl(). The SCSI/sg ioctl commands doesn't use a gendisk so it's safe for any SCSI devices to use scsi_cmd_ioctl(). Signed-off-by: FUJITA Tomonori <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>

2007-04-17[SCSI] sg: cap reserved_size values at max_sectorsAlan Stern
This patch (as857) modifies the SG_GET_RESERVED_SIZE and SG_SET_RESERVED_SIZE ioctls in the sg driver, capping the values at the device's request_queue's max_sectors value. This will permit cdrecord to obtain a legal value for the maximum transfer length, fixing Bugzilla #7026. The patch also caps the initial reserved_size value. There's no reason to have a reserved buffer larger than max_sectors, since it would be impossible to use the extra space. The corresponding ioctls in the block layer are modified similarly, and the initial value for the reserved_size is set as large as possible. This will effectively make it default to max_sectors. Note that the actual value is meaningless anyway, since block devices don't have a reserved buffer. Finally, the BLKSECTGET ioctl is added to sg, so that there will be a uniform way for users to determine the actual max_sectors value for any raw SCSI transport.

Commit 85e04e371b5a321b5df2bc3f8e0099a64fb087d7 cleaned up the timeout conversion, but did it exactly the wrong way. We get msecs from user space, and should convert them into jiffies.

2006-12-19[PATCH] Fixup blk_rq_unmap_user() APIJens Axboe

2006-11-16[PATCH] scsi: clear garbage after CDBs on SG_IOTejun Heo
ATAPI devices transfer fixed number of bytes for CDBs (12 or 16). Some ATAPI devices choke when shorter CDB is used and the left bytes contain garbage. Block SG_IO cleared left bytes but SCSI SG_IO didn't. This patch makes SCSI SG_IO clear it and simplify CDB clearing in block SG_IO.

2006-04-13[SCSI] unify SCSI_IOCTL_SEND_COMMAND implementationsChristoph Hellwig
We currently have two implementations of this obsolete ioctl, one in the block layer and one in the scsi code. Both of them have drawbacks. This patch kills the scsi layer version after updating the block version with the missing bits: - argument checking - use scatterlist I/O - set number of retries based on the submitted command This is the last user of non-S/G I/O except for the gdth driver, so getting this in ASAP and through the scsi tree would be nie to kill the non-S/G I/O path.

2005-12-15[SCSI] seperate max_sectors from max_hw_sectorsMike Christie
- export __blk_put_request and blk_execute_rq_nowait needed for async REQ_BLOCK_PC requests - seperate max_hw_sectors and max_sectors for block/scsi_ioctl.c and SG_IO bio.c helpers per Jens's last comments. Since block/scsi_ioctl.c SG_IO was already testing against max_sectors and SCSI-ml was setting max_sectors and max_hw_sectors to the same value this does not change any scsi SG_IO behavior. It only prepares ll_rw_blk.c, scsi_ioctl.c and bio.c for when SCSI-ml begins to set a valid max_hw_sectors for all LLDs. Today if a LLD does not set it SCSI-ml sets it to a safe default and some LLDs set it to a artificial low value to overcome memory and feedback issues. Note: Since we now cap max_sectors to BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS, which is 1024, drivers that used to call blk_queue_max_sectors with a large value of max_sectors will now see the fs requests capped to BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS.
