[PATCH v18 05/12] fs/read_write: Enable copy_file_range for block device.

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


From: Anuj Gupta <anuj20.g@xxxxxxxxxxx>

This is a prep patch. Allow copy_file_range to work for block devices.
Relaxing generic_copy_file_checks allows us to reuse the existing infra,
instead of adding a new user interface for block copy offload.
Change generic_copy_file_checks to use ->f_mapping->host for both inode_in
and inode_out. Allow block device in generic_file_rw_checks.
