[PATCH v4 01/18] block: Add PR callouts for read keys and reservation

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


Add callouts for reading keys and reservations. This allows LIO to support
the READ_KEYS and READ_RESERVATION commands and will allow dm-multipath
to optimize it's error handling so it can check if it's getting an error
because there's an existing reservation or if we need to retry different

Note: This only initially adds the struct definitions in the kernel as I'm
not sure if we wanted to export the interface to userspace yet. read_keys
and read_reservation are exactly what dm-multipath and LIO need, but for a
userspace interface we may want something like SCSI's READ_FULL_STATUS and
NVMe's report reservation commands. Those are overkill for dm/LIO and
READ_FULL_STATUS is sometimes broken for SCSI devices.
