2007-05-01cfq-iosched: fix alias + front merge bugJens Axboe
There's a really rare and obscure bug in CFQ, that causes a crash in cfq_dispatch_insert() due to rq == NULL. One example of that is seen here: http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/4/15/41 Neil correctly diagnosed the situation for how this can happen, read that analysis here: http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/4/25/57 This looks like it requires md to trigger, even though it should potentially be possible to due with O_DIRECT (at least if you edit the kernel and doctor some of the unplug calls). The fix is to move the ->next_rq update to when we add a request to the rbtree. Then we remove the possibility for a request to exist in the rbtree code, but not have ->next_rq correctly updated.

2007-01-29[PATCH] Fix SG_IO timeout jiffy conversionMike Christie
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. Not the other way around. Here is a fix with the overflow check sg.c has added in. This fixes DVD burnign with Nero.

2007-01-23[PATCH] elevator: move clearing of unplug flag earlierLinas Vepstas
A flag was recently added to the elevator code to avoid performing an unplug when reuests are being re-queued. The goal of this flag was to avoid a deep recursion that can occur when re-queueing requests after a SCSI device/host reset. See http://lkml.org/lkml/2006/5/17/254 However, that fix added the flag near the bottom of a case statement, where an earlier break (in an if statement) could transport one out of the case, without setting the flag. This patch sets the flag earlier in the case statement. I re-discovered the deep recursion recently during testing; I was told that it was a known problem, and the fix to it was in the kernel I was testing. Indeed it was ... but it didn't fix the bug. With the patch below, I no longer see the bug.

2007-01-02[PATCH] cfq-iosched: merging problemJens Axboe
Two issues: - The final return 1 should be a return 0, otherwise comparing cfqq is a noop. - bio_sync() only checks the sync flag, while rq_is_sync() checks both for READ and sync. The latter is what we want. Expand the bio check to include reads, and relax the restriction to allow merging of async io into sync requests. In the future we want to clean up the SYNC logic, right now it means both sync request (such as READ and O_DIRECT WRITE) and unplug-on-issue. Leave that for later.

2006-12-22[PATCH] cfq-iosched: tighten allow merge criteriaJens Axboe
The logic in cfq_allow_merge() wasn't clear enough - basically allow merging for the same queues only. Do a fast check for 'rq and bio both sync/async' before doing the cfqq hash lookup. This is verified to work with the fixed elv_try_merge() from commit bb4067e34159648d394943d5e2a011f838bff22f.

2006-12-20[PATCH] cfq-iosched: don't allow sync merges across queuesJens Axboe
Currently we allow any merge, even if the io originates from different processes. This can cause really bad starvation and unfairness, if those ios happen to be synchronous (reads or direct writes). So add a allow_merge hook to the io scheduler ops, so an io scheduler can help decide whether a bio/process combination may be merged with an existing request.

2006-12-19[PATCH] Fixup blk_rq_unmap_user() APIJens Axboe
The blk_rq_unmap_user() API is not very nice. It expects the caller to know that rq->bio has to be reset to the original bio, and it will silently do nothing if that is not done.

2006-11-22WorkStruct: Pass the work_struct pointer instead of context dataDavid Howells
Pass the work_struct pointer to the work function rather than context data. The work function can use container_of() to work out the data. For the cases where the container of the work_struct may go away the moment the pending bit is cleared, it is made possible to defer the release of the structure by deferring the clearing of the pending bit. To make this work, an extra flag is introduced into the management side of the work_struct. This governs auto-release of the structure upon execution. Ordinarily, the work queue executor would release the work_struct for further scheduling or deallocation by clearing the pending bit prior to jumping to the work function. This means that, unless the driver makes some guarantee itself that the work_struct won't go away, the work function may not access anything else in the work_struct or its container lest they be deallocated.. This is a problem if the auxiliary data is taken away (as done by the last patch). However, if the pending bit is *not* cleared before jumping to the work function, then the work function *may* access the work_struct and its container with no problems. But then the work function must itself release the work_struct by calling work_release(). In most cases, automatic release is fine, so this is the default. Special initiators exist for the non-auto-release case (ending in _NAR). Signed-Off-By: David Howells <dhowells@redhat.com>
