[PATCH v4 00/13] netfs, cifs: Delegate high-level I/O to netfslib

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Steve,

Here are patches to convert cifs to use my netfslib helpers.  With this I can
run a certain amount of xfstests on CIFS, though I'm running into occasional
ksmbd issues and not all the tests work correctly because of fallocate issues.

The patches remove around 2000 lines from CIFS

This stacks on top of my netfs-lib branch[1].

CIFS notes:

 (1) CIFS is made to use unbuffered I/O for unbuffered caching modes and
     write-through caching for cache=strict.

 (2) Various cifs fallocate() function implementations needed fixing and
     those fixes are upstream or on the way.

 (3) It should be possible to turn on multipage folio support in CIFS now.

 (4) The then-unused CIFS code is removed in three patches, not one, to
     avoid the git patch generator from producing confusing patches in
     which it thinks code is being moved around rather than just being

The patches can be found here also:


ver #4)
 - Slimmed down the branch:
   - Split the cifs-related patches off to a separate branch (cifs-netfs)
   - Deferred the content-encryption to the in-progress ceph changes.
   - Deferred the use-PG_writeback rather than PG_fscache patch
 - Rebased on a later linux-next with afs-rotation patches.

ver #3)
 - Moved the fscache module into netfslib to avoid export cycles.
 - Fixed a bunch of bugs.
 - Got CIFS to pass as much of xfstests as possible.
 - Added a patch to make 9P use all the helpers.
 - Added a patch to stop using PG_fscache, but rather dirty pages on
   reading and have writepages write to the cache.

ver #2)
 - Folded the addition of NETFS_RREQ_NONBLOCK/BLOCKED into first patch that
   uses them.
 - Folded addition of rsize member into first user.
 - Don't set rsize in ceph (yet) and set it in kafs to 256KiB.  cifs sets
   it dynamically.
 - Moved direct_bv next to direct_bv_count in struct netfs_io_request and
   labelled it with a __counted_by().
 - Passed flags into netfs_xa_store_and_mark() rather than two bools.
 - Removed netfs_set_up_buffer() as it wasn't used.
