Subject[PATCH V6 04/30] block: introduce multipage page bvec helpers
Date
This patch introduces helpers of 'bvec_iter_chunk_*' for multipage
bvec(chunk) support.

The introduced interfaces treate one bvec as real multipage chunk,
for example, .bv_len is the total length of the multipage chunk.

The existed helpers of bvec_iter_* are interfaces for supporting current
bvec iterator which is thought as singlepage only by drivers, fs, dm and
etc. These helpers will build singlepage bvec in flight, so users of
current bio/bvec iterator still can work well and needn't change even
though we store real multipage chunk into bvec table.

+/*
+ * What is multipage bvecs(chunk)?
+ *
+ * - bvec stored in bio->bi_io_vec is always multipage(mp) style
+ *
+ * - bvec(struct bio_vec) represents one physically contiguous I/O
+ * buffer, now the buffer may include more than one pages since
+ * multipage(mp) bvec is supported, and all these pages represented
+ * by one bvec is physically contiguous. Before mp support, at most
+ * one page can be included in one bvec, we call it singlepage(sp)
+ * bvec.
+ *
+ * - .bv_page of th bvec represents the 1st page in the mp chunk
+ *
+ * - .bv_offset of the bvec represents offset of the buffer in the bvec
+ *
+ * The effect on the current drivers/filesystem/dm/bcache/...:
+ *
+ * - almost everyone supposes that one bvec only includes one single
+ * page, so we keep the sp interface not changed, for example,
+ * bio_for_each_segment() still returns bvec with single page
+ *
+ * - bio_for_each_segment_all() will be changed to return singlepage
+ * bvec too
+ *
+ * - during iterating, iterator variable(struct bvec_iter) is always
+ * updated in multipage bvec style and that means bvec_iter_advance()
+ * is kept not changed
+ *
+ * - returned(copied) singlepage bvec is generated in flight by bvec
+ * helpers from the stored multipage bvec(chunk)
+ *
+ * - In case that some components(such as iov_iter) need to support
+ * multipage chunk, we introduce new helpers(bvec_iter_chunk_*) for
+ * them.
