Subject: [PATCH 0/2] generic_file_buffered_read() refactoring, perf improvements

Rebased this patchset onto 5.9, I'd like to finally get this because
generic_file_buffered_read() has turned into a real monstrosity to work with.
And it's a major performance improvement, for both small random and large
sequential reads. On my test box, 4k buffered random reads go from ~150k to
~250k iops, and the improvements to big sequential reads are even bigger.

This incorporates the fix for IOCB_WAITQ handling that Jens just posted as well,
also factors out lock_page_for_iocb() to improve handling of the various iocb

Kent Overstreet (2):
  fs: Break generic_file_buffered_read up into multiple functions
  fs: generic_file_buffered_read() now uses find_get_pages_contig
