Subject[PATCH 0/13] Chaining sg lists for bio IO commands v3
Date
Hi,

Third version of the patchset. Changes since v2:

- Get rid of ->next and use the ->page field as a next pointer.
This saves some space in the scatterlist structure, at the cost
of one extra sg segment per chained list. Should definitely be
a space win.

- Cleanup linux/scatterlist.h, most of the stuff is outside
the ARCH_HAS_SG_CHAIN ifdef now.

- Convert the x86-64 iommu code, enable it on x86-64.

- Convert all (hopefully) SCSI drivers to use the sg helpers so
chaining can be supported globally. I collated all the SCSI
driver patches into the 13/13 patch, as not to post a huge
patch series. I would much appreciate some eye balls on this part,
catching any dumb mistakes I may have made. The changes are usually
trivial, but some are not and I do clown around occasionally :-)

Like v2, you still need to enable large commands manually for a
device, ala:

# cd /sys/block/sda/queue
# echo 1024 > max_segments
# cat max_hw_sectors_kb > max_sectors_kb
which would limit you to 1024 segments (effectively 8 scatterlists
chained), and should give you IO's of at least 4mb. You can go larger
than 1024, there's no real limit.
