    Subject[RFC] generic_file_direct_IO() argument changes for AIO
    Date
    Hi,

    Inorder to support AIO for raw/O_DIRECT, I need to add "struct kiocb *"
    to generic_file_direct_IO() and all direct_IO() ops.

    generic_file_direct_IO(int rw, struct file *file, const struct iovec *iov,
    loff_t offset, unsigned long nr_segs)

    Instead of adding a new argument, I propose replace

    "struct file *file" argument with "struct kiocb *iocb"

    One can get "filp" from iocb->ki_filp.

    Any objections ?

    Thanks,
    Badari
