Subject: [PATCH v4 0/4] Introduce provisioning primitives for thinly provisioned storage

Hi,

This patch series is revision 4 of introducing a new mechanism to pass through provision requests on stacked thinly provisioned storage devices. See [1] for original cover letter.

[1] https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/ZDnMl8A1B1+Tfn5S@redhat.com/T/#md4f20113c2242755747ae069f84be720a6751012

Changelog:

V4:
- Fix UNSHARE and KEEP_SIZE handling in blkdev_fallocate.
- Split dm-thin support into a separate patch.
- Remove ranged provision request handling and adjust io hints to handle provisioning one block at a time.
- Add missing provision_supported for dm targets.

V3:
- Drop FALLOC_FL_PROVISION and use mode == 0 for provision requests.
- Drop fs-specific patches; will be sent out in a follow up series.
- Fix missing shared block handling for thin snapshots.

V2:
- Fix stacked limit handling.
- Enable provision request handling in dm-snapshot
- Don't call truncate_bdev_range if blkdev_fallocate() is called with
  FALLOC_FL_PROVISION.
- Clarify semantics of FALLOC_FL_PROVISION and why it needs to be a separate flag
  (as opposed to overloading mode == 0).


Sarthak Kukreti (4):
  block: Introduce provisioning primitives
  dm: Add block provisioning support
  dm-thin: Add REQ_OP_PROVISION support
  loop: Add support for provision requests
