Merge branch 'for-3.13/core' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block
Pull block IO core updates from Jens Axboe: "This is the pull request for the core changes in the block layer for 3.13. It contains: - The new blk-mq request interface. This is a new and more scalable queueing model that marries the best part of the request based interface we currently have (which is fully featured, but scales poorly) and the bio based "interface" which the new drivers for high IOPS devices end up using because it's much faster than the request based one. The bio interface has no block layer support, since it taps into the stack much earlier. This means that drivers end up having to implement a lot of functionality on their own, like tagging, timeout handling, requeue, etc. The blk-mq interface provides all these. Some drivers even provide a switch to select bio or rq and has code to handle both, since things like merging only works in the rq model and hence is faster for some workloads. This is a huge mess. Conversion of these drivers nets us a substantial code reduction. Initial results on converting SCSI to this model even shows an 8x improvement on single queue devices. So while the model was intended to work on the newer multiqueue devices, it has substantial improvements for "classic" hardware as well. This code has gone through extensive testing and development, it's now ready to go. A pull request is coming to convert virtio-blk to this model will be will be coming as well, with more drivers scheduled for 3.14 conversion. - Two blktrace fixes from Jan and Chen Gang. - A plug merge fix from Alireza Haghdoost. - Conversion of __get_cpu_var() from Christoph Lameter. - Fix for sector_div() with 64-bit divider from Geert Uytterhoeven. - A fix for a race between request completion and the timeout handling from Jeff Moyer. This is what caused the merge conflict with blk-mq/core, in case you are looking at that. - A dm stacking fix from Mike Snitzer. - A code consolidation fix and duplicated code removal from Kent Overstreet. - A handful of block bug fixes from Mikulas Patocka, fixing a loop crash and memory corruption on blk cg. - Elevator switch bug fix from Tomoki Sekiyama. A heads-up that I had to rebase this branch. Initially the immutable bio_vecs had been queued up for inclusion, but a week later, it became clear that it wasn't fully cooked yet. So the decision was made to pull this out and postpone it until 3.14. It was a straight forward rebase, just pruning out the immutable series and the later fixes of problems with it. The rest of the patches applied directly and no further changes were made" * 'for-3.13/core' of git://git.kernel.dk/linux-block: (31 commits) block: replace IS_ERR and PTR_ERR with PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO block: replace IS_ERR and PTR_ERR with PTR_ERR_OR_ZERO block: Do not call sector_div() with a 64-bit divisor kernel: trace: blktrace: remove redundent memcpy() in compat_blk_trace_setup() block: Consolidate duplicated bio_trim() implementations block: Use rw_copy_check_uvector() block: Enable sysfs nomerge control for I/O requests in the plug list block: properly stack underlying max_segment_size to DM device elevator: acquire q->sysfs_lock in elevator_change() elevator: Fix a race in elevator switching and md device initialization block: Replace __get_cpu_var uses bdi: test bdi_init failure block: fix a probe argument to blk_register_region loop: fix crash if blk_alloc_queue fails blk-core: Fix memory corruption if blkcg_init_queue fails block: fix race between request completion and timeout handling blktrace: Send BLK_TN_PROCESS events to all running traces blk-mq: don't disallow request merges for req->special being set blk-mq: mq plug list breakage blk-mq: fix for flush deadlock ...
