      ide: ensure atapi sense request aren't preempted · 9a6d5488
      Jens Axboe authored
      There's an issue with how sense requests are handled in IDE. If ide-cd
      encounters an error, it queues a sense request. With how IDE request
      handling is done, this is the next request we need to handle. But it's
      impossible to guarantee this, as another request could come in between
      the sense being queued, and ->queue_rq() being run and handling it. If
      that request ALSO fails, then we attempt to doubly queue the single
      sense request we have.
      Since we only support one active request at the time, defer request
      processing when a sense request is queued.

      block: introduce new block status code type · 2a842aca
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Currently we use nornal Linux errno values in the block layer, and while
      we accept any error a few have overloaded magic meanings.  This patch
      instead introduces a new  blk_status_t value that holds block layer specific
      status codes and explicitly explains their meaning.  Helpers to convert from
      and to the previous special meanings are provided for now, but I suspect
      we want to get rid of them in the long run - those drivers that have a
      errno input (e.g. networking) usually get errnos that don't know about
      the special block layer overloads, and similarly returning them to userspace
      will usually return somethings that strictly speaking isn't correct
      for file system operations, but that's left as an exercise for later.
      For now the set of errors is a very limited set that closely corresponds
      to the previous overloaded errno values, but there is some low hanging
      fruite to improve it.
      blk_status_t (ab)uses the sparse __bitwise annotations to allow for sparse
      typechecking, so that we can easily catch places passing the wrong values.

      block: fold cmd_type into the REQ_OP_ space · aebf526b
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Instead of keeping two levels of indirection for requests types, fold it
      all into the operations.  The little caveat here is that previously
      cmd_type only applied to struct request, while the request and bio op
      fields were set to plain REQ_OP_READ/WRITE even for passthrough
      Instead this patch adds new REQ_OP_* for SCSI passthrough and driver
      private requests, althought it has to add two for each so that we
      can communicate the data in/out nature of the request.

      ide: don't abuse cmd_type · 2f5a8e80
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      Currently the legacy ide driver defines several request types of it's own,
      which is in the way of removing that field entirely.
      Instead add a type field to struct ide_request and use that to distinguish
      the different types of IDE-internal requests.
      It's a bit of a mess, but so is the surrounding code..

      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking... · 5a0e3ad6
      Tejun Heo authored
      include cleanup: Update gfp.h and slab.h includes to prepare for breaking implicit slab.h inclusion from percpu.h
      percpu.h is included by sched.h and module.h and thus ends up being
      included when building most .c files.  percpu.h includes slab.h which
      in turn includes gfp.h making everything defined by the two files
      universally available and complicating inclusion dependencies.
      percpu.h -> slab.h dependency is about to be removed.  Prepare for
      this change by updating users of gfp and slab facilities include those
      headers directly instead of assuming availability.  As this conversion
      needs to touch large number of source files, the following script is
      used as the basis of conversion.
      The script does the followings.
      * Scan files for gfp and slab usages and update includes such that
        only the necessary includes are there.  ie. if only gfp is used,
        gfp.h, if slab is used, slab.h.
      * When the script inserts a new include, it looks at the include
        blocks and try to put the new include such that its order conforms
        to its surrounding.  It's put in the include block which contains
        core kernel includes, in the same order that the rest are ordered -
        alphabetical, Christmas tree, rev-Xmas-tree or at the end if there
        doesn't seem to be any matching order.
      * If the script can't find a place to put a new include (mostly
        because the file doesn't have fitting include block), it prints out
        an error message indicating which .h file needs to be added to the
      The conversion was done in the following steps.
      1. The initial automatic conversion of all .c files updated slightly
         over 4000 files, deleting around 700 includes and adding ~480 gfp.h
         and ~3000 slab.h inclusions.  The script emitted errors for ~400
      2. Each error was manually checked.  Some didn't need the inclusion,
         some needed manual addition while adding it to implementation .h or
         embedding .c file was more appropriate for others.  This step added
         inclusions to around 150 files.
      3. The script was run again and the output was compared to the edits
         from #2 to make sure no file was left behind.
      4. Several build tests were done and a couple of problems were fixed.
         e.g. lib/decompress_*.c used malloc/free() wrappers around slab
         APIs requiring slab.h to be added manually.
      5. The script was run on all .h files but without automatically
         editing them as sprinkling gfp.h and slab.h inclusions around .h
         files could easily lead to inclusion dependency hell.  Most gfp.h
         inclusion directives were ignored as stuff from gfp.h was usually
         wildly available and often used in preprocessor macros.  Each
         slab.h inclusion directive was examined and added manually as
      6. percpu.h was updated not to include slab.h.
      7. Build test were done on the following configurations and failures
         were fixed.  CONFIG_GCOV_KERNEL was turned off for all tests (as my
         distributed build env didn't work with gcov compiles) and a few
         more options had to be turned off depending on archs to make things
         build (like ipr on powerpc/64 which failed due to missing writeq).
         * x86 and x86_64 UP and SMP allmodconfig and a custom test config.
         * powerpc and powerpc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * sparc and sparc64 SMP allmodconfig
         * ia64 SMP allmodconfig
         * s390 SMP allmodconfig
         * alpha SMP allmodconfig
         * um on x86_64 SMP allmodconfig
      8. percpu.h modifications were reverted so that it could be applied as
         a separate patch and serve as bisection point.
      Given the fact that I had only a couple of failures from tests on step
      6, I'm fairly confident about the coverage of this conversion patch.
      If there is a breakage, it's likely to be something in one of the arch
      headers which should be easily discoverable easily on most builds of
      the specific arch.

      block: implement and enforce request peek/start/fetch · 9934c8c0
      Tejun Heo authored
      Till now block layer allowed two separate modes of request execution.
      A request is always acquired from the request queue via
      elv_next_request().  After that, drivers are free to either dequeue it
      or process it without dequeueing.  Dequeue allows elv_next_request()
      to return the next request so that multiple requests can be in flight.
      Executing requests without dequeueing has its merits mostly in
      allowing drivers for simpler devices which can't do sg to deal with
      segments only without considering request boundary.  However, the
      benefit this brings is dubious and declining while the cost of the API
      ambiguity is increasing.  Segment based drivers are usually for very
      old or limited devices and as converting to dequeueing model isn't
      difficult, it doesn't justify the API overhead it puts on block layer
      and its more modern users.
      Previous patches converted all block low level drivers to dequeueing
      model.  This patch completes the API transition by...
      * renaming elv_next_request() to blk_peek_request()
      * renaming blkdev_dequeue_request() to blk_start_request()
      * adding blk_fetch_request() which is combination of peek and start
      * disallowing completion of queued (not started) requests
      * applying new API to all LLDs
      Renamings are for consistency and to break out of tree code so that
      it's apparent that out of tree drivers need updating.

      ide: dequeue in-flight request · 8f6205cd
      Tejun Heo authored
      ide generally has single request in flight and tracks it using
      hwif->rq and all state handlers follow the following convention.
      * ide_started is returned if the request is in flight.
      * ide_stopped is returned if the queue needs to be restarted.  The
        request might or might not have been processed fully or partially.
      * hwif->rq is set to NULL, when an issued request completes.
      So, dequeueing model can be implemented by dequeueing after fetch,
      requeueing if hwif->rq isn't NULL on ide_stopped return and doing
      about the same thing on completion / port unlock paths.  These changes
      can be made in ide-io proper.
      In addition to the above main changes, the following updates are
      * ide-cd shouldn't dequeue a request when issuing REQUEST SENSE for it
        as the request is already dequeued.
      * ide-atapi uses request queue as stack when issuing REQUEST SENSE to
        put the REQUEST SENSE in front of the failed request.  This now
        needs to be done using requeueing.

      block: add rq->resid_len · c3a4d78c
      Tejun Heo authored
      rq->data_len served two purposes - the length of data buffer on issue
      and the residual count on completion.  This duality creates some
      First of all, block layer and low level drivers can't really determine
      what rq->data_len contains while a request is executing.  It could be
      the total request length or it coulde be anything else one of the
      lower layers is using to keep track of residual count.  This
      complicates things because blk_rq_bytes() and thus
      [__]blk_end_request_all() relies on rq->data_len for PC commands.
      Drivers which want to report residual count should first cache the
      total request length, update rq->data_len and then complete the
      request with the cached data length.
      Secondly, it makes requests default to reporting full residual count,
      ie. reporting that no data transfer occurred.  The residual count is
      an exception not the norm; however, the driver should clear
      rq->data_len to zero to signify the normal cases while leaving it
      alone means no data transfer occurred at all.  This reverse default
      behavior complicates code unnecessarily and renders block PC on some
      drivers (ide-tape/floppy) unuseable.
      This patch adds rq->resid_len which is used only for residual count.
      While at it, remove now unnecessasry blk_rq_bytes() caching in
      ide_pc_intr() as rq->data_len is not changed anymore.

      ide-tape: use standard data transfer mechanism · e998f30b
      Tejun Heo authored
      Impact: use standard way to transfer data
      ide-tape uses rq in an interesting way.  For r/w requests, rq->special
      is used to carry a private buffer management structure idetape_bh and
      rq->nr_sectors and current_nr_sectors are initialized to the number of
      idetape blocks which isn't necessary 512 bytes.  Also,
      rq->current_nr_sectors is used to report back the residual count in
      units of idetape blocks.
      This peculiarity taxes both block layer and ide.  ide-atapi has
      different paths and hooks to accomodate it and what a rq means becomes
      quite confusing and making changes at the block layer becomes quite
      difficult and error-prone.
      This patch makes ide-tape use bio instead.  With the previous patch,
      ide-tape currently is using single contiguos buffer so replacing it
      isn't difficult.  Data buffer is mapped into bio using
      blk_rq_map_kern() in idetape_queue_rw_tail().  idetape_io_buffers()
      and idetape_update_buffers() are dropped and pc->bh is set to null to
      tell ide-atapi to use standard data transfer mechanism and idetape_bh
      byte counts are updated by the issuer on completion using the residual
      This change also nicely removes the FIXME in ide_pc_intr() where
      ide-tape rqs need to be completed using ide_rq_bytes() instead of
      blk_rq_bytes() (although this didn't really matter as the request
      didn't have bio).

      ide-atapi,tape,floppy: allow ->pc_callback() to change rq->data_len · eb6a61bb
      Tejun Heo authored
      Impact: allow residual count implementation in ->pc_callback()
      rq->data_len has two duties - carrying the number of input bytes on
      issue and carrying residual count back to the issuer on completion.
      ide-atapi completion callback ->pc_callback() is the right place to do
      this but currently ide-atapi depends on rq->data_len carrying the
      original request size after calling ->pc_callback() to complete the pc
      This patch makes ide_pc_intr(), ide_tape_issue_pc() and
      ide_floppy_issue_pc() cache length to complete before calling
      ->pc_callback() so that it can modify rq->data_len as necessary.
      Note: As using rq->data_len for two purposes can make cases like this
            incorrect in subtle ways, future changes will introduce separate
            field for residual count.
