Subject: [PATCH v2 0/7] Convert skb_frag_t to bio_vec

From: "Matthew Wilcox (Oracle)" <willy@...radead.org>

The skb_frag_t and bio_vec are fundamentally the same (page, offset,
length) tuple.  This patch series unifies the two, leaving the
skb_frag_t typedef in place.  This has the immediate advantage that
we already have iov_iter support for bvecs and don't need to add
support for iterating skbuffs.  It enables a long-term plan to use
bvecs more broadly within the kernel and should make network-storage
drivers able to do less work converting between skbuffs and biovecs.

It will consume more memory on 32-bit kernels.  If that proves
problematic, we can look at ways of addressing it.

Matthew Wilcox (Oracle) (7):
  net: Increase the size of skb_frag_t
  net: Reorder the contents of skb_frag_t
  net: Use skb accessors in network drivers
  net: Use skb accessors in network core
  net: Rename skb_frag page to bv_page
  net: Rename skb_frag_t size to bv_len
  net: Convert skb_frag_t to bio_vec
