* block: Always check length of all iov entries in blk_rq_map_user_iov()Ben Hutchings2011-11-131-3/+4
| | | | | | | | | | | Even after commit 5478755616ae2ef1ce144dded589b62b2a50d575 ("block: check for proper length of iov entries earlier ...") we still won't check for zero-length entries after an unaligned entry.

| | | | | | | | | | | commit 9284bcf checks for proper length of iov entries in blk_rq_map_user_iov(). But if the map is unaligned, kernel will break out the loop without checking for the proper length. So we need to check the proper length before the unalign check.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | Remove the current bio flags and reuse the request flags for the bio, too. This allows to more easily trace the type of I/O from the filesystem down to the block driver. There were two flags in the bio that were missing in the requests: BIO_RW_UNPLUG and BIO_RW_AHEAD. Also I've renamed two request flags that had a superflous RW in them.

* block: hide request sector and data_lenTejun Heo2009-05-111-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Block low level drivers for some reason have been pretty good at abusing block layer API. Especially struct request's fields tend to get violated in all possible ways. Make it clear that low level drivers MUST NOT access or manipulate rq->sector and rq->data_len directly by prefixing them with double underscores. This change is also necessary to break build of out-of-tree codes which assume the previous block API where internal fields can be manipulated and rq->data_len carries residual count on completion.

* block: move the padding adjustment to blk_rq_map_sgFUJITA Tomonori2008-04-211-19/+5
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | blk_rq_map_user adjusts bi_size of the last bio. It breaks the rule that req->data_len (the true data length) is equal to sum(bio). It broke the scsi command completion code. commit e97a294ef6938512b655b1abf17656cf2b26f709 was introduced to fix the above issue. However, the partial completion code doesn't work with it. The commit is also a layer violation (scsi mid-layer should not know about the block layer's padding). This patch moves the padding adjustment to blk_rq_map_sg (suggested by James). The padding works like the drain buffer. This patch breaks the rule that req->data_len is equal to sum(sg), however, the drain buffer already broke it. So this patch just restores the rule that req->data_len is equal to sub(bio) without breaking anything new. Now when a low level driver needs padding, blk_rq_map_user and blk_rq_map_user_iov guarantee there's enough room for padding. blk_rq_map_sg can safely extend the last entry of a scatter list. blk_rq_map_sg must extend the last entry of a scatter list only for a request that got through bio_copy_user_iov. This patches introduces new REQ_COPY_USER flag.

* block: add bio_copy_user_iov support to blk_rq_map_user_iovFUJITA Tomonori2008-04-211-5/+17
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | With this patch, blk_rq_map_user_iov uses bio_copy_user_iov when a low level driver needs padding or a buffer in sg_iovec isn't aligned. That is, it uses temporary kernel buffers instead of mapping user pages directly. When a LLD needs padding, later blk_rq_map_sg needs to extend the last entry of a scatter list. bio_copy_user_iov guarantees that there is enough space for padding by using temporary kernel buffers instead of user pages. blk_rq_map_user_iov needs buffers in sg_iovec to be aligned. The comment in blk_rq_map_user_iov indicates that drivers/scsi/sg.c also needs buffers in sg_iovec to be aligned. Actually, drivers/scsi/sg.c works with unaligned buffers in sg_iovec (it always uses temporary kernel buffers).

* block: add request->raw_data_lenTejun Heo2008-02-191-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | With padding and draining moved into it, block layer now may extend requests as directed by queue parameters, so now a request has two sizes - the original request size and the extended size which matches the size of area pointed to by bios and later by sgs. The latter size is what lower layers are primarily interested in when allocating, filling up DMA tables and setting up the controller. Both padding and draining extend the data area to accomodate controller characteristics. As any controller which speaks SCSI can handle underflows, feeding larger data area is safe. So, this patch makes the primary data length field, request->data_len, indicate the size of full data area and add a separate length field, request->raw_data_len, for the unmodified request size. The latter is used to report to higher layer (userland) and where the original request size should be fed to the controller or device.

This works because bio_copy_user() always uses full pages and block DMA alignment isn't allowed to go over PAGE_SIZE. However, the implementation didn't update the last bio of the request to make this padding visible to lower layers. This patch makes blk_rq_map_user() extend the last bio such that it includes the padding area and the size of area pointed to by the request is properly aligned.
