Subject: [PATCH v8 0/5] Introduce provisioning primitives

Hi,

This patch series is version 8 of the patch series to introduce
block-level provisioning mechanism (original [1]), which is useful for provisioning
space across thinly provisioned storage architectures (loop devices
backed by sparse files, dm-thin devices, virtio-blk). This series has
minimal changes over v7[2].

This patch series is rebased from the linux-dm/dm-6.5-provision-support [1] on to
(cac405a3bfa2 Merge tag 'for-6.6-rc3-tag'). In addition, there's an
additional patch to allow passing through an unshare intent via REQ_OP_PROVISION
(suggested by Darrick in [4]).

[1] Original: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/20220915164826.1396245-1-sarthakkukreti@google.com/
[2] v7 (last series): https://lore.kernel.org/linux-fsdevel/20230518223326.18744-1-sarthakkukreti@chromium.org/
[3] linux-dm/dm-6.5-provision-suppport tree:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/device-mapper/linux-dm.git/log/?h=dm-6.5-provision-support
(with the last two WIP patches for dm-thinpool dropped as per discussion with
maintainers).
[4] https://lore.kernel.org/linux-fsdevel/20230522163710.GA11607@frogsfrogsfrogs/

Changes from v7:
- Drop dm-thinpool (will be independently developed with snapshot
  support) and dm-snapshot (will not be supported) from the series.
- (By snitzer@...nel.org) Fixes for block device provision limits.
- (Suggested by djwong@...nel.org) Add mechanism to pass unshare intent
  via REQ_OP_PROVISION

Sarthak Kukreti (5):
  block: Don't invalidate pagecache for invalid falloc modes
  block: Introduce provisioning primitives
  loop: Add support for provision requests
  dm: Add block provisioning support
  block: Pass unshare intent via REQ_OP_PROVISION
