Subject: [PATCHv6 0/9] ext2: DIO to use iomap

Hello All,

Please find the series which rewrites ext2 direct-io path to use modern
iomap interface.

1. Patch-2 Added generic_buffers_fsync_noflush() & generic_buffers_fsync() functions.
2. Patch-3 & Patch-4 to use above functions in ext4 & ext2.
3. Added Reviewed-by from Christoph on Patch-9 (iomap: Add DIO tracepoints)

RFCv4 -> PATCHv5:
1. Added trace_iomap_dio_rw_begin tracepoint in __iomap_dio_rw()
2. Added Reviewed-by tags from Christoph

RFCv3 -> RFCV4:
1. Renamed __generic_file_fsync_nolock() from libfs to generic_buffer_fsync() in
   (Review comment from Christoph)
3. Fixed few data types for parameters in ext2 trace patch (size_t && ssize_t)
4. Killed this patch "Minor refactor of iomap_dio_rw"
5. Changed iomap tracepoint patch and fixed the data types (size_t && ssize_t)
   (addressed review comments from Christoph)

RFCv2 -> RFCv3:
1. Addressed minor review comments related to extern, parameter naming in
   function declaration, removing not required braces and shorting overly long
2. Added Reviewed-by from various reviewers.
3. Fixed a warning & couple of compilation errors in Patch-7 (ext2 trace points)
   related to CFLAGS_trace & second related to unable to find function
   definition for iov_iter_count(). (requires uio.h file)
   CFLAGS_trace is required in Makefile so that it can find trace.h file from
   tracepoint infrastructure.
5. Shortened naming of tracepoint events for ext2 dio.
6. Added iomap DIO tracepoint events.
7. Disha tested this series internally against Power with "auto" group for 4k
   and 64k blocksize configuration. Added her "Tested-by" tag in all DIO
   related patches. No new failures were reported.

Thanks everyone for the review and test. The series is looking good to me now.
It has been tested on x86 and Power with different configurations.
Please let me know if anything else is required on this.


Ritesh Harjani (IBM) (9):
  ext2/dax: Fix ext2_setsize when len is page aligned

  ext2: Move direct-io to use iomap
  fs.h: Add TRACE_IOCB_STRINGS for use in trace points
  ext2: Add direct-io trace points
  iomap: Remove IOMAP_DIO_NOSYNC unused dio flag
  iomap: Add DIO tracepoints
