    block: add a report_zones method · e76239a3
    Christoph Hellwig authored
    Dispatching a report zones command through the request queue is a major
    pain due to the command reply payload rewriting necessary. Given that
    blkdev_report_zones() is executing everything synchronously, implement
    report zones as a block device file operation instead, allowing major
    simplification of the code in many places.
    sd, null-blk, dm-linear and dm-flakey being the only block device
    drivers supporting exposing zoned block devices, these drivers are
    modified to provide the device side implementation of the
    report_zones() block device file operation.
    For device mappers, a new report_zones() target type operation is
    defined so that the upper block layer calls blkdev_report_zones() can
    be propagated down to the underlying devices of the dm targets.
    Implementation for this new operation is added to the dm-linear and
    dm-flakey targets.
