2009-09-11cfq-iosched: no need to keep track of busy_rt_queuesVivek Goyal1-23/+0
o Get rid of busy_rt_queues infrastructure. Looks like it is redundant. o Once an RT queue gets request it will preempt any of the BE or IDLE queues immediately. Otherwise this queue will be put on service tree and scheduler will anyway select this queue before any of the BE or IDLE queue. Hence looks like there is no need to keep track of how many busy RT queues are currently on service tree.

2009-09-11scsi,block: update SCSI to handle mixed merge failuresTejun Heo2-19/+0
Update scsi_io_completion() such that it only fails requests till the next error boundary and retry the leftover. This enables block layer to merge requests with different failfast settings and still behave correctly on errors. Allow merge of requests of different failfast settings. As SCSI is currently the only subsystem which follows failfast status, there's no need to worry about other block drivers for now.

2009-09-11block: implement mixed merge of different failfast requestsTejun Heo3-0/+143
Failfast has characteristics from other attributes. When issuing, executing and successuflly completing requests, failfast doesn't make any difference. It only affects how a request is handled on failure. Allowing requests with different failfast settings to be merged cause normal IOs to fail prematurely while not allowing has performance penalties as failfast is used for read aheads which are likely to be located near in-flight or to-be-issued normal IOs. This patch introduces the concept of 'mixed merge'. A request is a mixed merge if it is merge of segments which require different handling on failure. Currently the only mixable attributes are failfast ones (or lack thereof). When a bio with different failfast settings is added to an existing request or requests of different failfast settings are merged, the merged request is marked mixed. Each bio carries failfast settings and the request always tracks failfast state of the first bio. When the request fails, blk_rq_err_bytes() can be used to determine how many bytes can be safely failed without crossing into an area which requires further retrials. This allows request merging regardless of failfast settings while keeping the failure handling correct. This patch only implements mixed merge but doesn't enable it. The next one will update SCSI to make use of mixed merge. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Cc: Niel Lambrechts <niel.lambrechts@gmail.com> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jens.axboe@oracle.com>
2009-09-11block: use the same failfast bits for bio and requestTejun Heo1-12/+7
bio and request use the same set of failfast bits. This patch makes the following changes to simplify things. * enumify BIO_RW* bits and reorder bits such that BIOS_RW_FAILFAST_* bits coincide with __REQ_FAILFAST_* bits. * The above pushes BIO_RW_AHEAD out of sync with __REQ_FAILFAST_DEV but the matching is useless anyway. init_request_from_bio() is responsible for setting FAILFAST bits on FS requests and non-FS requests never use BIO_RW_AHEAD. Drop the code and comment from blk_rq_bio_prep(). * Define REQ_FAILFAST_MASK which is OR of all FAILFAST bits and simplify FAILFAST flags handling in init_request_from_bio().

2009-09-01block: Allow changing max_sectors_kb above the default 512Nikanth Karthikesan1-1/+1
The patch "block: Use accessor functions for queue limits" (ae03bf639a5027d27270123f5f6e3ee6a412781d) changed queue_max_sectors_store() to use blk_queue_max_sectors() instead of directly assigning the value. But blk_queue_max_sectors() differs a bit 1. It sets both max_sectors_kb, and max_hw_sectors_kb 2. Never allows one to change max_sectors_kb above BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS. If one specifies a value greater then max_hw_sectors is set to that value but max_sectors is set to BLK_DEF_MAX_SECTORS I am not sure whether blk_queue_max_sectors() should be changed, as it seems to be that way for a long time. And there may be callers dependent on that behaviour. This patch simply reverts to the older way of directly assigning the value to max_sectors as it was before.

2009-07-17block: fix failfast merge testing in elv_rq_merge_ok()Tejun Heo1-4/+9
Commit ab0fd1debe730ec9998678a0c53caefbd121ed10 tries to prevent merge of requests with different failfast settings. In elv_rq_merge_ok(), it compares new bio's failfast flags against the merge target request's. However, the flag testing accessors for bio and blk don't return boolean but the tested bit value directly and FAILFAST on bio and blk don't match, so directly comparing them with == results in false negative unnecessary preventing merge of readahead requests. This patch convert the results to boolean by negating them before comparison.

2009-07-10cfq-iosched: reset oom_cfqq in cfq_set_request()Vivek Goyal1-1/+1
In case memory is scarce, we now default to oom_cfqq. Once memory is available again, we should allocate a new cfqq and stop using oom_cfqq for a particular io context. Once a new request comes in, check if we are using oom_cfqq, and if yes, try to allocate a new cfqq. Tested the patch by forcing the use of oom_cfqq and upon next request thread realized that it was using oom_cfqq and it allocated a new cfqq.

2009-07-03block: don't merge requests of different failfast settingsTejun Heo2-0/+14
Block layer used to merge requests and bios with different failfast settings. This caused regular IOs to fail prematurely when they were merged into failfast requests for readahead. Niel Lambrechts could trigger the problem semi-reliably on ext4 when resuming from STR. ext4 uses readahead when reading inodes and combined with the deterministic extra SATA PHY exception cycle during resume on the specific configuration, non-readahead inode read would fail causing ext4 errors. Please read the following thread for details. http://lkml.org/lkml/2009/5/23/21 This patch makes block layer reject merging if the failfast settings don't match. This is correct but likely to lower IO performance by preventing regular IOs from mingling into surrounding readahead requests. Changes to allow such mixed merges and handle errors correctly will be added later.

2009-07-01block: Create bip slabs with embedded integrity vectorsMartin K. Petersen1-1/+1
This patch restores stacking ability to the block layer integrity infrastructure by creating a set of dedicated bip slabs. Each bip slab has an embedded bio_vec array at the end. This cuts down on memory allocations and also simplifies the code compared to the original bvec version. Only the largest bip slab is backed by a mempool.

2009-06-11block: add request clone interface (v2)Kiyoshi Ueda1-0/+100
This patch adds the following 2 interfaces for request-stacking drivers: - blk_rq_prep_clone(struct request *clone, struct request *orig, struct bio_set *bs, gfp_t gfp_mask, int (*bio_ctr)(struct bio *, struct bio*, void *), void *data) * Clones bios in the original request to the clone request (bio_ctr is called for each cloned bios.) * Copies attributes of the original request to the clone request. The actual data parts (e.g. ->cmd, ->buffer, ->sense) are not copied. - blk_rq_unprep_clone(struct request *clone) * Frees cloned bios from the clone request. Request stacking drivers (e.g. request-based dm) need to make a clone request for a submitted request and dispatch it to other devices. To allocate request for the clone, request stacking drivers may not be able to use blk_get_request() because the allocation may be done in an irq-disabled context. So blk_rq_prep_clone() takes a request allocated by the caller as an argument. For each clone bio in the clone request, request stacking drivers should be able to set up their own completion handler. So blk_rq_prep_clone() takes a callback function which is called for each clone bio, and a pointer for private data which is passed to the callback. NOTE: blk_rq_prep_clone() doesn't copy any actual data of the original request. Pages are shared between original bios and cloned bios. So caller must not complete the original request before the clone request.

2009-06-10block: prevent possible io_context->refcount overflowNikanth Karthikesan2-7/+7
Currently io_context has an atomic_t(32-bit) as refcount. In the case of cfq, for each device against whcih a task does I/O, a reference to the io_context would be taken. And when there are multiple process sharing io_contexts(CLONE_IO) would also have a reference to the same io_context. Theoretically the possible maximum number of processes sharing the same io_context + the number of disks/cfq_data referring to the same io_context can overflow the 32-bit counter on a very high-end machine. Even though it is an improbable case, let us make it atomic_long_t.

2009-06-09tracing/events: convert block trace points to TRACE_EVENT()Li Zefan2-18/+6
TRACE_EVENT is a more generic way to define tracepoints. Doing so adds these new capabilities to this tracepoint: - zero-copy and per-cpu splice() tracing - binary tracing without printf overhead - structured logging records exposed under /debug/tracing/events - trace events embedded in function tracer output and other plugins - user-defined, per tracepoint filter expressions ... Cons: - no dev_t info for the output of plug, unplug_timer and unplug_io events. no dev_t info for getrq and sleeprq events if bio == NULL. no dev_t info for rq_abort,...,rq_requeue events if rq->rq_disk == NULL. This is mainly because we can't get the deivce from a request queue. But this may change in the future. - A packet command is converted to a string in TP_assign, not TP_print. While blktrace do the convertion just before output. Since pc requests should be rather rare, this is not a big issue. - In blktrace, an event can have 2 different print formats, but a TRACE_EVENT has a unique format, which means we have some unused data in a trace entry. The overhead is minimized by using __dynamic_array() instead of __array(). I've benchmarked the ioctl blktrace vs the splice based TRACE_EVENT tracing: dd dd + ioctl blktrace dd + TRACE_EVENT (splice) 1 7.36s, 42.7 MB/s 7.50s, 42.0 MB/s 7.41s, 42.5 MB/s 2 7.43s, 42.3 MB/s 7.48s, 42.1 MB/s 7.43s, 42.4 MB/s 3 7.38s, 42.6 MB/s 7.45s, 42.2 MB/s 7.41s, 42.5 MB/s So the overhead of tracing is very small, and no regression when using those trace events vs blktrace. And the binary output of TRACE_EVENT is much smaller than blktrace: # ls -l -h -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8.8M 06-09 13:24 sda.blktrace.0 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 195K 06-09 13:24 sda.blktrace.1 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2.7M 06-09 13:25 trace_splice.out Following are some comparisons between TRACE_EVENT and blktrace: plug: kjournald-480 [000] 303.084981: block_plug: [kjournald] kjournald-480 [000] 303.084981: 8,0 P N [kjournald] unplug_io: kblockd/0-118 [000] 300.052973: block_unplug_io: [kblockd/0] 1 kblockd/0-118 [000] 300.052974: 8,0 U N [kblockd/0] 1 remap: kjournald-480 [000] 303.085042: block_remap: 8,0 W 102736992 + 8 <- (8,8) 33384 kjournald-480 [000] 303.085043: 8,0 A W 102736992 + 8 <- (8,8) 33384 bio_backmerge: kjournald-480 [000] 303.085086: block_bio_backmerge: 8,0 W 102737032 + 8 [kjournald] kjournald-480 [000] 303.085086: 8,0 M W 102737032 + 8 [kjournald] getrq: kjournald-480 [000] 303.084974: block_getrq: 8,0 W 102736984 + 8 [kjournald] kjournald-480 [000] 303.084975: 8,0 G W 102736984 + 8 [kjournald] bash-2066 [001] 1072.953770: 8,0 G N [bash] bash-2066 [001] 1072.953773: block_getrq: 0,0 N 0 + 0 [bash] rq_complete: konsole-2065 [001] 300.053184: block_rq_complete: 8,0 W () 103669040 + 16 [0] konsole-2065 [001] 300.053191: 8,0 C W 103669040 + 16 [0] ksoftirqd/1-7 [001] 1072.953811: 8,0 C N (5a 00 08 00 00 00 00 00 24 00) [0] ksoftirqd/1-7 [001] 1072.953813: block_rq_complete: 0,0 N (5a 00 08 00 00 00 00 00 24 00) 0 + 0 [0] rq_insert: kjournald-480 [000] 303.084985: block_rq_insert: 8,0 W 0 () 102736984 + 8 [kjournald] kjournald-480 [000] 303.084986: 8,0 I W 102736984 + 8 [kjournald] Changelog from v2 -> v3: - use the newly introduced __dynamic_array().
