Looks like what we are discussing here is the I/O covering a partial page, i.e. the starting offset and the end boundary might not cover the whole page. It still isn't very clear that why do we need to consider queue_logical_block_size(q) and not the PAGE_SIZE for those 2 vectors (1. given atomic writes starting offset and length has alignment restrictions? 2. So maybe there are devices with starting offset alignment to be as low as sector size?) But either ways, my point is it would be good to have a comment above this function to help understand what is going on here. > +static unsigned int blk_queue_max_guaranteed_bio_sectors( > + struct queue_limits *limits, > + struct request_queue *q) > +{ > + unsigned int max_segments = min(BIO_MAX_VECS, limits->max_segments); > + unsigned int length; > + > + length = min(max_segments, 2) * queue_logical_block_size(q); > + if (max_segments > 2) > + length += (max_segments - 2) * PAGE_SIZE; > + > + return rounddown_pow_of_two(length >> SECTOR_SHIFT); > +} > + > static void blk_atomic_writes_update_limits(struct request_queue *q) > { > struct queue_limits *limits = &q->limits; > unsigned int max_hw_sectors = > rounddown_pow_of_two(limits->max_hw_sectors); > + unsigned int unit_limit = min(max_hw_sectors, > + blk_queue_max_guaranteed_bio_sectors(limits, q)); > > limits->atomic_write_max_sectors = > min(limits->atomic_write_hw_max_sectors, max_hw_sectors); > limits->atomic_write_unit_min_sectors = > - min(limits->atomic_write_hw_unit_min_sectors, max_hw_sectors); > + min(limits->atomic_write_hw_unit_min_sectors, unit_limit); > limits->atomic_write_unit_max_sectors = > - min(limits->atomic_write_hw_unit_max_sectors, max_hw_sectors); > + min(limits->atomic_write_hw_unit_max_sectors, unit_limit); > } > > /** > -- > 2.31.1
