      Xen: consolidate and simplify struct xenbus_driver instantiation · 73db144b
      Jan Beulich authored
      The 'name', 'owner', and 'mod_name' members are redundant with the
      identically named fields in the 'driver' sub-structure. Rather than
      switching each instance to specify these fields explicitly, introduce
      a macro to simplify this.
      Eliminate further redundancy by allowing the drvname argument to
      DEFINE_XENBUS_DRIVER() to be blank (in which case the first entry from
      the ID table will be used for .driver.name).
      Also eliminate the questionable xenbus_register_{back,front}end()
      wrappers - their sole remaining purpose was the checking of the
      'owner' field, proper setting of which shouldn't be an issue anymore
      when the macro gets used.
      v2: Restore DRV_NAME for the driver name in xen-pciback.

      xen: don't use flush_scheduled_work() · 30d65030
      Tejun Heo authored
      flush_scheduled_work() is deprecated and scheduled to be removed.
      Directly flush info->work instead.

      block: remove REQ_HARDBARRIER · 02e031cb
      Christoph Hellwig authored
      REQ_HARDBARRIER is dead now, so remove the leftovers.  What's left
      at this point is:
       - various checks inside the block layer.
       - sanity checks in bio based drivers.
       - now unused bio_empty_barrier helper.
       - Xen blockfront use of BLKIF_OP_WRITE_BARRIER - it's dead for a while,
         but Xen really needs to sort out it's barrier situaton.
       - setting of ordered tags in uas - dead code copied from old scsi
       - scsi different retry for barriers - it's dead and should have been
         removed when flushes were converted to FS requests.
       - blktrace handling of barriers - removed.  Someone who knows blktrace
         better should add support for REQ_FLUSH and REQ_FUA, though.

      block: autoconvert trivial BKL users to private mutex · 2a48fc0a
      Arnd Bergmann authored
      The block device drivers have all gained new lock_kernel
      calls from a recent pushdown, and some of the drivers
      were already using the BKL before.
      This turns the BKL into a set of per-driver mutexes.
      Still need to check whether this is safe to do.
      if grep -q lock_kernel ${file} ; then
          if grep -q 'include.*linux.mutex.h' ${file} ; then
                  sed -i '/include.*<linux\/smp_lock.h>/d' ${file}
                  sed -i 's/include.*<linux\/smp_lock.h>.*$/include <linux\/mutex.h>/g' ${file}

      block: deprecate barrier and replace blk_queue_ordered() with blk_queue_flush() · 4913efe4
      Tejun Heo authored
      Barrier is deemed too heavy and will soon be replaced by FLUSH/FUA
      requests.  Deprecate barrier.  All REQ_HARDBARRIERs are failed with
      -EOPNOTSUPP and blk_queue_ordered() is replaced with simpler
      blk_queue_flush() takes combinations of REQ_FLUSH and FUA.  If a
      device has write cache and can flush it, it should set REQ_FLUSH.  If
      the device can handle FUA writes, it should also set REQ_FUA.
      All blk_queue_ordered() users are converted.
      * ORDERED_DRAIN is mapped to 0 which is the default value.
      * ORDERED_DRAIN_FLUSH is mapped to REQ_FLUSH.

      block: kill QUEUE_ORDERED_BY_TAG · 6958f145
      Tejun Heo authored
      Nobody is making meaningful use of ORDERED_BY_TAG now and queue
      draining for barrier requests will be removed soon which will render
      the advantage of tag ordering moot.  Kill ORDERED_BY_TAG.  The
      following users are affected.
      * brd: converted to ORDERED_DRAIN.
      * virtio_blk: ORDERED_TAG path was already marked deprecated.  Removed.
      * xen-blkfront: ORDERED_TAG case dropped.
