| | | | | | | | | | | | | This moves the FC classes bsg code to the block layer and makes it a lib so that other classes like iscsi and SAS can use it. It is helpful because working with the request queue, bios, creating scatterlists, etc are a pain that the LLD does not have to worry about with normal IOs and should not have to worry about for bsg requests.

* kconfig: rename CONFIG_EMBEDDED to CONFIG_EXPERTDavid Rientjes2011-01-201-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The meaning of CONFIG_EMBEDDED has long since been obsoleted; the option is used to configure any non-standard kernel with a much larger scope than only small devices. This patch renames the option to CONFIG_EXPERT in init/Kconfig and fixes references to the option throughout the kernel. A new CONFIG_EMBEDDED option is added that automatically selects CONFIG_EXPERT when enabled and can be used in the future to isolate options that should only be considered for embedded systems (RISC architectures, SLOB, etc). Calling the option "EXPERT" more accurately represents its intention: only expert users who understand the impact of the configuration changes they are making should enable it.

* blk-cgroup: config options re-arrangementVivek Goyal2010-04-261-23/+0
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This patch fixes few usability and configurability issues. o All the cgroup based controller options are configurable from "Genral Setup/Control Group Support/" menu. blkio is the only exception. Hence make this option visible in above menu and make it configurable from there to bring it inline with rest of the cgroup based controllers. o Get rid of CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED. This option currently does two things. - Enable printing of cgroup paths in blktrace - Enables CONFIG_DEBUG_BLK_CGROUP, which in turn displays additional stat files in cgroup. If we are using group scheduling, blktrace data is of not really much use if cgroup information is not present. To get this data, currently one has to also enable CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED, which in turn brings the overhead of all the additional debug stat files which is not desired. Hence, this patch moves printing of cgroup paths under CONFIG_CFQ_GROUP_IOSCHED. This allows us to get rid of CONFIG_DEBUG_CFQ_IOSCHED completely. Now all the debug stat files are controlled only by CONFIG_DEBUG_BLK_CGROUP which can be enabled through config menu.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Enable by default support for large devices and files (CONFIG_LBD): - With 1TB disks being a commodity hardware it is quite easy to hit 2TB limitation while building RAIDs etc. and many distros have been using CONFIG_LBD=y by default already (at least Fedora 10 and openSUSE 11.1). - This should also prevent a subtle ext4 filesystem compatibility issue: mke2fs.ext4 defaults to creating filesystems with huge_files feature enabled and such filesystems cannot be later mounted read-write on machines with CONFIG_LBD=n (it should be quite easy to hit this issue when trying to use filesystem created using distro kernel on system running the self-build kernel, think about USB disk enclosures & co.).

* Kconfig: clean up block/Kconfig help descriptionsNick Andrew2008-04-211-23/+42
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Modify the help descriptions of block/Kconfig for clarity, accuracy and consistency. Refactor the BLOCK description a bit. The wording "This permits ... to be removed" isn't quite right; the block layer is removed when the option is disabled, whereas most descriptions talk about what happens when the option is enabled. Reformat the list of what is affected by disabling the block layer. Add more examples of large block devices to LBD and strive for technical accuracy; block devices of size _exactly_ 2TB require CONFIG_LBD, not only "bigger than 2TB". Also try to say (perhaps not very clearly) that the config option is only needed when you want to have individual block devices of size >= 2TB, for example if you had 3 x 1TB disks in your computer you'd have a total storage size of 3TB but you wouldn't need the option unless you want to aggregate those disks into a RAID or LVM. Improve terminology and grammar on BLK_DEV_IO_TRACE. I also added the boilerplate "If unsure, say N" to most options. Precisely say "2TB and larger" for LSF. Indent the help text for BLK_DEV_BSG by 2 spaces in accordance with the standard.

* [PATCH] BLOCK: Make it possible to disable the block layer [try #6]David Howells2006-09-301-0/+20
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Make it possible to disable the block layer. Not all embedded devices require it, some can make do with just JFFS2, NFS, ramfs, etc - none of which require the block layer to be present. This patch does the following: (*) Introduces CONFIG_BLOCK to disable the block layer, buffering and blockdev support. (*) Adds dependencies on CONFIG_BLOCK to any configuration item that controls an item that uses the block layer. This includes: (*) Block I/O tracing. (*) Disk partition code. (*) All filesystems that are block based, eg: Ext3, ReiserFS, ISOFS. (*) The SCSI layer. As far as I can tell, even SCSI chardevs use the block layer to do scheduling. Some drivers that use SCSI facilities - such as USB storage - end up disabled indirectly from this. (*) Various block-based device drivers, such as IDE and the old CDROM drivers. (*) MTD blockdev handling and FTL. (*) JFFS - which uses set_bdev_super(), something it could avoid doing by taking a leaf out of JFFS2's book. (*) Makes most of the contents of linux/blkdev.h, linux/buffer_head.h and linux/elevator.h contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK being set. sector_div() is, however, still used in places, and so is still available. (*) Also made contingent are the contents of linux/mpage.h, linux/genhd.h and parts of linux/fs.h. (*) Makes a number of files in fs/ contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) Makes mm/bounce.c (bounce buffering) contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) set_page_dirty() doesn't call __set_page_dirty_buffers() if CONFIG_BLOCK is not enabled. (*) fs/no-block.c is created to hold out-of-line stubs and things that are required when CONFIG_BLOCK is not set: (*) Default blockdev file operations (to give error ENODEV on opening). (*) Makes some /proc changes: (*) /proc/devices does not list any blockdevs. (*) /proc/diskstats and /proc/partitions are contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) Makes some compat ioctl handling contingent on CONFIG_BLOCK. (*) If CONFIG_BLOCK is not defined, makes sys_quotactl() return -ENODEV if given command other than Q_SYNC or if a special device is specified. (*) In init/do_mounts.c, no reference is made to the blockdev routines if CONFIG_BLOCK is not defined. This does not prohibit NFS roots or JFFS2. (*) The bdflush, ioprio_set and ioprio_get syscalls can now be absent (return error ENOSYS by way of cond_syscall if so). (*) The seclvl_bd_claim() and seclvl_bd_release() security calls do nothing if CONFIG_BLOCK is not set, since they can't then happen.
