2015-11-25block/sd: Fix device-imposed transfer length limitsMartin K. Petersen
Commit 4f258a46346c ("sd: Fix maximum I/O size for BLOCK_PC requests") had the unfortunate side-effect of removing an implicit clamp to BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS for REQ_TYPE_FS requests in the block layer code. This caused problems for some SMR drives. Debugging this issue revealed a few problems with the existing infrastructure since the block layer didn't know how to deal with device-imposed limits, only limits set by the I/O controller. - Introduce a new queue limit, max_dev_sectors, which is used by the ULD to signal the maximum sectors for a REQ_TYPE_FS request. - Ensure that max_dev_sectors is correctly stacked and taken into account when overriding max_sectors through sysfs. - Rework sd_read_block_limits() so it saves the max_xfer and opt_xfer values for later processing. - In sd_revalidate() set the queue's max_dev_sectors based on the MAXIMUM TRANSFER LENGTH value in the Block Limits VPD. If this value is not reported, fall back to a cap based on the CDB TRANSFER LENGTH field size. - In sd_revalidate(), use OPTIMAL TRANSFER LENGTH from the Block Limits VPD--if reported and sane--to signal the preferred device transfer size for FS requests. Otherwise use BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS. - blk_limits_max_hw_sectors() is no longer used and can be removed. Signed-off-by: Martin K.

2015-08-19block: Replace SG_GAPS with new queue limits maskKeith Busch
The SG_GAPS queue flag caused checks for bio vector alignment against PAGE_SIZE, but the device may have different constraints. This patch adds a queue limits so a driver with such constraints can set to allow requests that would have been unnecessarily split. The new gaps check takes the request_queue as a parameter to simplify the logic around invoking this function. This new limit makes the queue flag redundant, so removing it and all usage.

2015-08-18Revert "block: remove artifical max_hw_sectors cap"Jeff Moyer
This reverts commit 34b48db66e08ca1c1bc07cf305d672ac940268dc. That commit caused performance regressions for streaming I/O workloads on a number of different storage devices, from SATA disks to external RAID arrays. It also managed to trip up some buggy firmware in at least one drive, causing data corruption. The next patch will bump the default max_sectors_kb value to 1280, which will accommodate a 10-data-disk stripe write with chunk size 128k. In the testing I've done using iozone, fio, and aio-stress, a value of 1280 does not show a big performance difference from 512. This will hopefully still help the software RAID setup that Christoph saw the original performance gains with while still not regressing other storage configurations.

Commit bcdb247c6b6a ("sd: Limit transfer length") clamped the maximum size of an I/O request to the MAXIMUM TRANSFER LENGTH field in the BLOCK LIMITS VPD. This had the unfortunate effect of also limiting the maximum size of non-filesystem requests sent to the device through sg/bsg.

2015-07-17block: make /sys/block/<dev>/queue/discard_max_bytes writeableJens Axboe
Lots of devices support huge discard sizes these days. Depending on how the device handles them internally, huge discards can introduce massive latencies (hundreds of msec) on the device side. We have a sysfs file, discard_max_bytes, that advertises the max hardware supported discard size. Make this writeable, and split the settings into a soft and hard limit. This can be set from 'discard_granularity' and up to the hardware limit. Add a new sysfs file, 'discard_max_hw_bytes', that shows the hw set limit.

2015-03-31block: fix blk_stack_limits() regression due to lcm() changeMike Snitzer
Linux 3.19 commit 69c953c ("lib/lcm.c: lcm(n,0)=lcm(0,n) is 0, not n") caused blk_stack_limits() to not properly stack queue_limits for stacked devices (e.g. DM). Fix this regression by establishing lcm_not_zero() and switching blk_stack_limits() over to using it. DM uses blk_set_stacking_limits() to establish the initial top-level queue_limits that are then built up based on underlying devices' limits using blk_stack_limits(). In the case of optimal_io_size (io_opt) blk_set_stacking_limits() establishes a default value of 0. With commit 69c953c, lcm(0, n) is no longer n, which compromises proper stacking of the underlying devices' io_opt.

2014-10-09block: fix alignment_offset math that assumes io_min is a power-of-2Mike Snitzer

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.

blk_set_stacking_limits is intended to allow stacking drivers to build up the limits of the stacked device based on the underlying devices' limits. But defaulting 'max_sectors' to BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS (1024) doesn't allow the stacking driver to inherit a max_sectors larger than 1024 -- due to blk_stack_limits' use of min_not_zero.

Stacking driver queue limits are typically bounded exclusively by the capabilities of the low level devices, not by the stacking driver itself.

This allows us to inherit topology parameters from bottom devices without manually tweaking the default limits in each driver prior to calling the stacking function.

2011-03-02block: Initialize ->queue_lock to internal lock at queue allocation timeVivek Goyal
There does not seem to be a clear convention whether q->queue_lock is initialized or not when blk_cleanup_queue() is called. In the past it was not necessary but now blk_throtl_exit() takes up queue lock by default and needs queue lock to be available. In fact elevator_exit() code also has similar requirement just that it is less stringent in the sense that elevator_exit() is called only if elevator is initialized. Two problems have been noticed because of ambiguity about spin lock status. - If a driver calls blk_alloc_queue() and then soon calls blk_cleanup_queue() almost immediately, (because some other driver structure allocation failed or some other error happened) then blk_throtl_exit() will run into issues as queue lock is not initialized. Loop driver ran into this issue recently and I noticed error paths in md driver too. Similar error paths should exist in other drivers too. - If some driver provided external spin lock and zapped the lock before blk_cleanup_queue(), then it can lead to issues. So this patch initializes the default queue lock at queue allocation time. block throttling code is one of the users of queue lock and it is initialized at the queue allocation time, so it makes sense to initialize ->queue_lock also to internal lock. A driver can overide that lock later. This will take care of the issue where a driver does not have to worry about initializing the queue lock to default before calling blk_cleanup_queue() Signed-off-by: Vivek Goyal <vgoyal@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>

2010-12-17block: Deprecate QUEUE_FLAG_CLUSTER and use queue_limits insteadMartin K. Petersen
When stacking devices, a request_queue is not always available. This forced us to have a no_cluster flag in the queue_limits that could be used as a carrier until the request_queue had been set up for a metadevice. There were several problems with that approach. First of all it was up to the stacking device to remember to set queue flag after stacking had completed. Also, the queue flag and the queue limits had to be kept in sync at all times. We got that wrong, which could lead to us issuing commands that went beyond the max scatterlist limit set by the driver. The proper fix is to avoid having two flags for tracking the same thing. We deprecate QUEUE_FLAG_CLUSTER and use the queue limit directly in the block layer merging functions. The queue_limit 'no_cluster' is turned into 'cluster' to avoid double negatives and to ease stacking. Clustering defaults to being enabled as before. The queue flag logic is removed from the stacking function, and explicitly setting the cluster flag is no longer necessary in DM and MD.

The bounce_pfn of the request queue in 64 bit systems is set to the current max_low_pfn. Adding more memory later makes this incorrect. Memory allocated beyond this boot time max_low_pfn appear to require bounce buffers (bounce buffers are actually not allocated but used in calculating segments that may result in "over max segments limit" errors).

2010-09-10block: deprecate barrier and replace blk_queue_ordered() with blk_queue_flush()Tejun Heo
Barrier is deemed too heavy and will soon be replaced by FLUSH/FUA requests. Deprecate barrier. All REQ_HARDBARRIERs are failed with -EOPNOTSUPP and blk_queue_ordered() is replaced with simpler blk_queue_flush(). blk_queue_flush() takes combinations of REQ_FLUSH and FUA. If a device has write cache and can flush it, it should set REQ_FLUSH. If the device can handle FUA writes, it should also set REQ_FUA. All blk_queue_ordered() users are converted. * ORDERED_DRAIN is mapped to 0 which is the default value. * ORDERED_DRAIN_FLUSH is mapped to REQ_FLUSH. * ORDERED_DRAIN_FLUSH_FUA is mapped to REQ_FLUSH | REQ_FUA.

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.

2010-03-15block: Fix overrun in lcm() and move it to libMartin K. Petersen
lcm() was defined to take integer-sized arguments. The supplied arguments are multiplied, however, causing us to overflow given sufficiently large input. That in turn led to incorrect optimal I/O size reporting in some cases (RAID over RAID). Switch lcm() over to unsigned long similar to gcd() and move the function from blk-settings.c to lib.
