Subject[PATCH v3 0/7] no-copy bvec
Date
Currently, when iomap and block direct IO gets a bvec based iterator
the bvec will be copied, with all other accounting that takes much
CPU time and causes additional allocation for larger bvecs. The
patchset makes it to reuse the passed in iter bvec.

[1,2] are forbidding zero-length bvec segments to not pile special
cases, [3] skip/fix PSI tracking to not iterate over bvecs extra
time.

new (KIOPS) 1222 1222 1170 1137 1083 982

Previously, Jens got before 10% difference for polling real HW and small
block sizes, but that was for an older version that had one
iov_iter_advance() less


since RFC:
- add target_core_file patch by Christoph
- make no-copy default behaviour, remove iter flag
- iter_advance() instead of hacks to revert to work
- add bvec iter_advance() optimisation patch
- remove PSI annotations from direct IO (iomap, block and fs/direct)
- note in d/f/porting

since v1:
- don't allow zero-length bvec segments (Ming)
- don't add a BIO_WORKINGSET-less version of bio_add_page(), just clear
the flag at the end and leave it for further cleanups (Christoph)
- commit message and comments rewording (Dave)
- other nits by Christoph

since v2:
- add a comment in 1/7 (Christoph)
- add a note about 0-len bvecs in biovecs.rst (Matthew)

Christoph Hellwig (1):
target/file: allocate the bvec array as part of struct
target_core_file_cmd

Pavel Begunkov (6):
splice: don't generate zero-len segement bvecs
bvec/iter: disallow zero-length segment bvecs
block/psi: remove PSI annotations from direct IO
iov_iter: optimise bvec iov_iter_advance()
bio: add a helper calculating nr segments to alloc
bio: don't copy bvec for direct IO
