Subject: Re: [RFC 0/2] ext4: bmap & fiemap conversion to use iomap

Hello Ted/Jan/Andreas,

Any review comments on this please?


One more thing which I wanted to discuss about this patch set is 
testcase generic/473 ("Hole + Data" case).
With iomap we only report extent information upto what user requested
which I think is different than previous implementation.

I see that with iomap, generic/473 test case("hole + data" case) shows 
as failed, although it reported the data extents only upto what user 
requested. Also as per Documentation/filesystems/fiemap.txt, both
outputs are proper.


i.e. for below case (generic/473)
  63 echo "Hole + Data"
  64 $XFS_IO_PROG -c "fiemap -v 0 65k" $file | _filter_fiemap

<output for both ext4(with this patchset) & XFS is this>

generic/473 3s ... - output mismatch (see 
/home/qemu/work/xfstests-dev/results//xfs_filesystem/generic/473.out.bad)
