Subject[PATCH 00/29] ioatdma: towards raid support
The v3.2 version of the Intel(R) QuickData Technology specification adds
support for raid5 and raid6 offloads. The v3.2 implementation, like v3,
reuses the same basic dma descriptor ring mechanism that was introduced
for v2 devices. At the same time v3.2 breaks some assumptions of the
existing driver with the addition of mechanisms like extended
descriptors and interrupt-driven completion callbacks as specified by
the async_tx/raid-offload implementation.

The current driver blurs the lines between v1, v2, and v3 making it
difficult to append raid functionality without modifying legacy code
paths. The primary goal of this patchset is to refactor and isolate the
legacy (v1/v2) code paths from feature additions going forward by
migrating hardware version specific code to hardware version specific
files. It also takes the opportunity to perform some cleanups and
optimizations. For example, the conversion from a linked list to a
ring-buffer for the v2/v3 descriptor ring makes the code more readable
and reduces the size of the software descriptor from 136-bytes to
88-bytes with all the fields needed for NET_DMA fitting into one

One robustness fix required by the raid code is the ability to poll for
a descriptor while the channel is experiencing an "out of descriptors"
condition. This has been added for the v2/v3 ring implementation.

This cleanup is available via git at:

git:// ioat-refactor

It will hit -next shortly.

The driver is used by net/ when CONFIG_NET_DMA=y, and will be used by
drivers/md/ (after the raid extensions) when CONFIG_ASYNC_TX_DMA=y.
Hence the Cc: of netdev and linux-raid.
