Subject: [RFC v3 0/7] Turn iomap_page_ops into iomap_folio_ops

This is an updated proposal for changing the iomap page_ops operations
to make them more flexible so that they better suite the filesystem
needs.  It closes a race on gfs2 and cleans up the recent iomap changes
merged in the following upstream commit:

87be949912ee ("Merge tag 'xfs-6.2-merge-8' of git://")

The first patch introduces a folio_may_straddle_isize() helper as a
replacement for pagecache_isize_extended() when we have a locked folio.
This still needs independent verification, but it looks like a
worthwhile improvement to me.  I've left it in this patch queue for now,
but I can moved out of the way if prefered.

Any thoughts?


Andreas Gruenbacher (7):
  fs: Add folio_may_straddle_isize helper
  iomap: Add iomap_folio_done helper
  iomap/gfs2: Unlock and put folio in page_done handler
  iomap: Add iomap_folio_prepare helper
  iomap: Get page in page_prepare handler
  iomap/xfs: Eliminate the iomap_valid handler
  iomap: Rename page_ops to folio_ops
