Subject: [PATCH v4 4/7] ext4: support direct I/O with fscrypt using blk-crypto

From: Eric Biggers <>

Wire up ext4 with fscrypt direct I/O support. direct I/O with fscrypt is
only supported through blk-crypto (i.e. CONFIG_BLK_INLINE_ENCRYPTION must
have been enabled, the 'inlinecrypt' mount option must have been specified,
and either hardware inline encryption support must be present or
CONFIG_BLK_INLINE_ENCYRPTION_FALLBACK must have been enabled). Further,
direct I/O on encrypted files is only supported when I/O is aligned
to the filesystem block size (which is *not* necessarily the same as the
block device's block size).
