      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.

      block: Convert drivers to immutable biovecs · 003b5c57
      Kent Overstreet authored
      Now that we've got a mechanism for immutable biovecs -
      bi_iter.bi_bvec_done - we need to convert drivers to use primitives that
      respect it instead of using the bvec array directly.

      dm io: use fixed initial mempool size · bda8efec
      Mikulas Patocka authored
      Replace the arbitrary calculation of an initial io struct mempool size
      with a constant.
      The code calculated the number of reserved structures based on the request
      size and used a "magic" multiplication constant of 4.  This patch changes
      it to reserve a fixed number - itself still chosen quite arbitrarily.
      Further testing might show if there is a better number to choose.
      Note that if there is no memory pressure, we can still allocate an
      arbitrary number of "struct io" structures.  One structure is enough to
      process the whole request.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      Let it rip!
