Subject[PATCH UPDATED 3/3] block: reimplement FLUSH/FUA to support merge
The current FLUSH/FUA support has evolved from the implementation
which had to perform queue draining. As such, sequencing is done
queue-wide one flush request after another. However, with the
draining requirement gone, there's no reason to keep the queue-wide
sequential approach.

This patch reimplements FLUSH/FUA support such that each FLUSH/FUA
request is sequenced individually. The actual FLUSH execution is
double buffered and whenever a request wants to execute one for either
PRE or POSTFLUSH, it queues on the pending queue. Once certain
conditions are met, a flush request is issued and on its completion
all pending requests proceed to the next sequence.

This allows arbitrary merging of different type of flushes. How they
are merged can be primarily controlled and tuned by adjusting the
above said 'conditions' used to determine when to issue the next
flush.

This is inspired by Darrick's patches to merge multiple zero-data
flushes which helps workloads with highly concurrent fsync requests.

* As flush requests are never put on the IO scheduler, request fields
used for flush share space with rq->rb_node. rq->completion_data is
moved out of the union. This increases the request size by one
pointer.

As rq->elevator_private* are used only by the iosched too, it is
possible to reduce the request size further. However, to do that,
we need to modify request allocation path such that iosched data is
not allocated for flush requests.

* FLUSH/FUA processing happens on insertion now instead of dispatch.

- Comments updated as per Vivek and Mike.

/*
* Functions to sequence FLUSH and FUA writes.
+ *
+ * Copyright (C) 2011 Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics
+ * Copyright (C) 2011 Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>
+ *
+ * This file is released under the GPLv2.
+ *
+ * REQ_{FLUSH|FUA} requests are decomposed to sequences consisted of three
+ * optional steps - PREFLUSH, DATA and POSTFLUSH - according to the request
+ * properties and hardware capability.
+ *
+ * If a request doesn't have data, only REQ_FLUSH makes sense, which
+ * indicates a simple flush request. If there is data, REQ_FLUSH indicates
+ * that the device cache should be flushed before the data is executed, and
+ * REQ_FUA means that the data must be on non-volatile media on request
+ * completion.
+ *
+ * If the device doesn't have writeback cache, FLUSH and FUA don't make any
+ * difference. The requests are either completed immediately if there's no
+ * data or executed as normal requests otherwise.
+ *
+ * If the device has writeback cache and supports FUA, REQ_FLUSH is
+ * translated to PREFLUSH but REQ_FUA is passed down directly with DATA.
+ *
+ * If the device has writeback cache and doesn't support FUA, REQ_FLUSH is
+ * translated to PREFLUSH and REQ_FUA to POSTFLUSH.
+ *
+ * The actual execution of flush is double buffered. Whenever a request
+ * needs to execute PRE or POSTFLUSH, it queues at
+ * q->flush_queue[q->flush_pending_idx]. Once certain criteria are met, a
+ * flush is issued and the pending_idx is toggled. When the flush
+ * completes, all the requests which were pending are proceeded to the next
+ * step. This allows arbitrary merging of different types of FLUSH/FUA
+ * requests.
+ *
+ * Currently, the following conditions are used to determine when to issue
+ * flush.
+ *
+ * C1. At any given time, only one flush shall be in progress. This makes
+ * double buffering sufficient.
+ *
+ * C2. Flush is deferred if any request is executing DATA of its sequence.
+ * This avoids issuing separate POSTFLUSHes for requests which shared
+ * PREFLUSH.
+ *
+ * C3. The second condition is ignored if there is a request which has
+ * waited longer than FLUSH_PENDING_TIMEOUT. This is to avoid
+ * starvation in the unlikely case where there are continuous stream of
+ * FUA (without FLUSH) requests.
+ *
+ * For devices which support FUA, it isn't clear whether C2 (and thus C3)
+ * is beneficial.
+ *
+ * Note that a sequenced FLUSH/FUA request with DATA is completed twice.
+ * Once while executing DATA and again after the whole sequence is
+ * complete. The first completion updates the contained bio but doesn't
+ * finish it so that the bio submitter is notified only after the whole
+ * sequence is complete. This is implemented by testing REQ_FLUSH_SEQ in
+ * req_bio_endio().
+ *
+ * The above peculiarity requires that each FLUSH/FUA request has only one
+ * bio attached to it, which is guaranteed as they aren't allowed to be
+ * merged in the usual way.
