Subject: [RFC PATCH V2 00/14] Consolidate Post read processing code

This patchset moves the "post read processing" code into a file of its
own (i.e. fs/post_read_process.c) and modifies the generic
do_mpage_readpge() to make use of the functionality provided.

"Post read processing" implements code to track the state machine that
needs to be executed after reading data from files that are encrypted
and/or have verity metadata associated with them.

With these changes in place, the patchset changes Ext4 to use
mpage_readpage[s] instead of its own custom ext4_readpage[s]()
functions. This is done to reduce duplicity of code across
filesystems. Also, Post read processing source files will be built
only if one of CONFIG_FS_ENCRYPTION and CONFIG_FS_VERITY is enabled.

Members of "struct fscrypt_ctx" that tracked status of a "write"
operation are now made an anonymous structure since the decryption
state tracking members are now moved into "struct post_read_ctx".

The patchset also modifies fs/buffer.c and fscrypt functionality to
get file encryption/decryption to work with subpage-sized blocks.

The following fixes from Eric Biggers are prerequisites for this
  fscrypt: fix race where ->lookup() marks plaintext dentry as ciphertext
  fscrypt: only set dentry_operations on ciphertext dentries
  fscrypt: clear DCACHE_ENCRYPTED_NAME when unaliasing directory
  fscrypt: fix race allowing rename() and link() of ciphertext dentries
  fscrypt: clean up and improve dentry revalidation

The patches can also be obtained from,
" subpage-encryption"

1. The subset of the fscrypt_encrypt_page() that deals with
   FS_CFLG_OWN_PAGES case still needs to be tested. UBIFS seems to be the
   only user of this piece of code.
2. Verity changes needs to be added for F2FS and I will add them in the
   next patchset based on the review comments obtained for the current

RFC V1 -> RFC V2:
1. Describe the purpose of "Post processing code" in the cover letter.
2. Fix build errors when CONFIG_FS_VERITY is enabled.

Chandan Rajendra (14):
  ext4: Clear BH_Uptodate flag on decryption error
  Consolidate "post read processing" into a new file
  fsverity: Add call back to decide if verity check has to be performed
  fsverity: Add call back to determine readpage limit
  fs/mpage.c: Integrate post read processing
  ext4: Wire up ext4_readpage[s] to use mpage_readpage[s]
  Remove the term "bio" from post read processing
  Add decryption support for sub-pagesized blocks
  ext4: Decrypt all boundary blocks when doing buffered write
  ext4: Decrypt the block that needs to be partially zeroed
  fscrypt_encrypt_page: Loop across all blocks mapped by a page range
  ext4: Compute logical block and the page range to be encrypted
  fscrypt_zeroout_range: Encrypt all zeroed out blocks of a page
  ext4: Enable encryption for subpage-sized blocks
