      locking/atomics: COCCINELLE/treewide: Convert trivial ACCESS_ONCE() patterns to READ_ONCE()/WRITE_ONCE()
      Please do not apply this to mainline directly, instead please re-run the
      coccinelle script shown below and apply its output.
      For several reasons, it is desirable to use {READ,WRITE}_ONCE() in
      preference to ACCESS_ONCE(), and new code is expected to use one of the
      former. So far, there's been no reason to change most existing uses of
      ACCESS_ONCE(), as these aren't harmful, and changing them results in
      However, for some features, the read/write distinction is critical to
      correct operation. To distinguish these cases, separate read/write
      accessors must be used. This patch migrates (most) remaining
      ACCESS_ONCE() instances to {READ,WRITE}_ONCE(), using the following
      coccinelle script:
      // Convert trivial ACCESS_ONCE() uses to equivalent READ_ONCE() and
      // WRITE_ONCE()
      // $ make coccicheck COCCI=/home/mark/once.cocci SPFLAGS="--include-headers" MODE=patch
      virtual patch
      @ depends on patch @
      expression E1, E2;
      - ACCESS_ONCE(E1) = E2
      + WRITE_ONCE(E1, E2)
      @ depends on patch @
      expression E;
      - ACCESS_ONCE(E)
      + READ_ONCE(E)

      block: replace bi_bdev with a gendisk pointer and partitions index · 74d46992
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      This way we don't need a block_device structure to submit I/O.  The
      block_device has different life time rules from the gendisk and
      request_queue and is usually only available when the block device node
      is open.  Other callers need to explicitly create one (e.g. the lightnvm
      passthrough code, or the new nvme multipathing code).
      For the actual I/O path all that we need is the gendisk, which exists
      once per block device.  But given that the block layer also does
      partition remapping we additionally need a partition index, which is
      used for said remapping in generic_make_request.
      Note that all the block drivers generally want request_queue or
      sometimes the gendisk, so this removes a layer of indirection all
      over the stack.

      vfs: Add page_cache_seek_hole_data helper · 334fd34d
      Andreas Gruenbacher authored
      Both ext4 and xfs implement seeking for the next hole or piece of data
      in unwritten extents by scanning the page cache, and both versions share
      the same bug when iterating the buffers of a page: the start offset into
      the page isn't taken into account, so when a page fits more than two
      filesystem blocks, things will go wrong.  For example, on a filesystem
      with a block size of 1k, the following command will fail:
        xfs_io -f -c "falloc 0 4k" \
                  -c "pwrite 1k 1k" \
                  -c "pwrite 3k 1k" \
                  -c "seek -a -r 0" foo
      In this example, neither lseek(fd, 1024, SEEK_HOLE) nor lseek(fd, 2048,
      SEEK_DATA) will return the correct result.
      Introduce a generic vfs helper for seeking in the page cache that gets
      this right.  The next commits will replace the filesystem specific

      fs: remove _submit_bh() · 020c2833
      Eric Biggers authored
      _submit_bh() allowed submitting a buffer_head for I/O using custom
      bio_flags.  It used to be used by jbd to set BIO_SNAP_STABLE, introduced
      by commit 71368511 ("mm: make snapshotting pages for stable writes a
      per-bio operation").  However, the code and flag has since been removed
      and no _submit_bh() users remain.
      These days, bio_flags are mostly used internally by the block layer to
      track the state of bio's.  As such, it doesn't really make sense for
      filesystems to use them instead of op_flags when wanting special
      behavior for block requests.
      Therefore, remove _submit_bh() and trim the bio_flags argument from

      block: better op and flags encoding · ef295ecf
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Now that we don't need the common flags to overflow outside the range
      of a 32-bit type we can encode them the same way for both the bio and
      request fields.  This in addition allows us to place the operation
      first (and make some room for more ops while we're at it) and to
      stop having to shift around the operation values.
      In addition this allows passing around only one value in the block layer
      instead of two (and eventuall also in the file systems, but we can do
      that later) and thus clean up a lot of code.
      Last but not least this allows decreasing the size of the cmd_flags
      field in struct request to 32-bits.  Various functions passing this
      value could also be updated, but I'd like to avoid the churn for now.

      fs: export __block_write_full_page · b4bba389
      Benjamin Marzinski authored
      gfs2 needs to be able to skip the check to see if a page is outside of
      the file size when writing it out. gfs2 can get into a situation where
      it needs to flush its in-memory log to disk while a truncate is in
      progress. If the file being trucated has data journaling enabled, it is
      possible that there are data blocks in the log that are past the end of
      the file. gfs can't finish the log flush without either writing these
      blocks out or revoking them. Otherwise, if the node crashed, it could
      overwrite subsequent changes made by other nodes in the cluster when
      it's journal was replayed.
      Unfortunately, there is no way to add log entries to the log during a
      flush. So gfs2 simply writes out the page instead. This situation can
      only occur when the truncate code still has the file locked exclusively,
      and hasn't marked this block as free in the metadata (which happens
      later in truc_dealloc).  After gfs2 writes this page out, the truncation
      code will shortly invalidate it and write out any revokes if necessary.
      In order to make this work, gfs2 needs to be able to skip the check for
      writes outside the file size. Since the check exists in
      block_write_full_page, this patch exports __block_write_full_page, which
      doesn't have the check.

      fs: introduce iomap infrastructure · ae259a9c
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Add infrastructure for multipage buffered writes.  This is implemented
      using an main iterator that applies an actor function to a range that
      can be written.
      This infrastucture is used to implement a buffered write helper, one
      to zero file ranges and one to implement the ->page_mkwrite VM
      operations.  All of them borrow a fair amount of code from fs/buffers.
      for now by using an internal version of __block_write_begin that
      gets passed an iomap and builds the corresponding buffer head.
      The file system is gets a set of paired ->iomap_begin and ->iomap_end
      calls which allow it to map/reserve a range and get a notification
      once the write code is finished with it.
      Based on earlier code from Dave Chinner.
