block: Add blk_rq_pos(rq) to sort rq when plushing
My workload is a raid5 which had 16 disks. And used our filesystem to write using direct-io mode. I used the blktrace to find those message: 8,16 0 6647 2.453665504 2579 M W 7493152 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6648 2.453672411 2579 Q W 7493160 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6649 2.453672606 2579 M W 7493160 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6650 2.453679255 2579 Q W 7493168 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6651 2.453679441 2579 M W 7493168 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6652 2.453685948 2579 Q W 7493176 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6653 2.453686149 2579 M W 7493176 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6654 2.453693074 2579 Q W 7493184 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6655 2.453693254 2579 M W 7493184 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6656 2.453704290 2579 Q W 7493192 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6657 2.453704482 2579 M W 7493192 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6658 2.453715016 2579 Q W 7493200 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6659 2.453715247 2579 M W 7493200 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6660 2.453721730 2579 Q W 7493208 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6661 2.453721974 2579 M W 7493208 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6662 2.453728202 2579 Q W 7493216 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6663 2.453728436 2579 M W 7493216 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6664 2.453734782 2579 Q W 7493224 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6665 2.453735019 2579 M W 7493224 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6666 2.453741401 2579 Q W 7493232 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6667 2.453741632 2579 M W 7493232 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6668 2.453748148 2579 Q W 7493240 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6669 2.453748386 2579 M W 7493240 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6670 2.453851843 2579 I W 7493144 + 104 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 0 2.453853661 0 m N cfq2579 insert_request 8,16 0 6671 2.453854064 2579 I W 7493120 + 24 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 0 2.453854439 0 m N cfq2579 insert_request 8,16 0 6672 2.453854793 2579 U N [md0_raid5] 2 8,16 0 0 2.453855513 0 m N cfq2579 Not idling.st->count:1 8,16 0 0 2.453855927 0 m N cfq2579 dispatch_insert 8,16 0 0 2.453861771 0 m N cfq2579 dispatched a request 8,16 0 0 2.453862248 0 m N cfq2579 activate rq,drv=1 8,16 0 6673 2.453862332 2579 D W 7493120 + 24 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 0 2.453865957 0 m N cfq2579 Not idling.st->count:1 8,16 0 0 2.453866269 0 m N cfq2579 dispatch_insert 8,16 0 0 2.453866707 0 m N cfq2579 dispatched a request 8,16 0 0 2.453867061 0 m N cfq2579 activate rq,drv=2 8,16 0 6674 2.453867145 2579 D W 7493144 + 104 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6675 2.454147608 0 C W 7493120 + 24 [0] 8,16 0 0 2.454149357 0 m N cfq2579 complete rqnoidle 0 8,16 0 6676 2.454791505 0 C W 7493144 + 104 [0] 8,16 0 0 2.454794803 0 m N cfq2579 complete rqnoidle 0 8,16 0 0 2.454795160 0 m N cfq schedule dispatch From above messages,we can find rq[W 7493144 + 104] and rq[W 7493120 + 24] do not merge. Because the bio order is: 8,16 0 6638 2.453619407 2579 Q W 7493144 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6639 2.453620460 2579 G W 7493144 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6640 2.453639311 2579 Q W 7493120 + 8 [md0_raid5] 8,16 0 6641 2.453639842 2579 G W 7493120 + 8 [md0_raid5] The bio(7493144) first and bio(7493120) later.So the subsequent bios will be divided into two parts. When flushing plug-list,because elv_attempt_insert_merge only support backmerge,not supporting frontmerge. So rq[7493120 + 24] can't merge with rq[7493144 + 104]. From my test,i found those situation can count 25% in our system. Using this patch, there is no this situation.
