Subject: [PATCH v2 10/14] fscrypt: decrypt only the needed blocks in __fscrypt_decrypt_bio()

From: Eric Biggers <>

In __fscrypt_decrypt_bio(), only decrypt the blocks that actually
comprise the bio, rather than assuming blocksize == PAGE_SIZE and
decrypting the entirety of every page used in the bio.

This is in preparation for allowing encryption on ext4 filesystems with
blocksize != PAGE_SIZE.

This is based on work by Chandan Rajendra.
