Subject[PATCH 2/2] ext4: Add EXT4_IOC_TRIM ioctl to handle batched discard
Date
Filesystem independent ioctl was rejected as not common enough to be in
core vfs ioctl. Since we still need to access to this functionality this
commit adds ext4 specific ioctl EXT4_IOC_TRIM to dispatch
ext4_trim_fs().

It takes fstrim_range structure as an argument. fstrim_range is definec in
the include/linux/fs.h and its definition is as follows.

struct fstrim_range {
__u64 start;
__u64 len;
__u64 minlen;
}

start - first Byte to trim
len - number of Bytes to trim from start
minlen - minimum extent length to trim, free extents shorter than this
number of Bytes will be ignored. This will be rounded up to fs
block size.

After the FITRIM is done, the number of actually discarded Bytes is stored
in fstrim_range.len to give the user better insight on how much storage
space has been really released for wear-leveling.
