Subject[PATCH v3 2/7] block: add REQ_NVM_GC for targets gc
Date
In preparation for Open-Channel SSDs. We introduce a special request for
open-channel ssd targets that must perform garbage collection.

Requests are divided into two types. The user and target specific. User
IOs are from fs, user-space, etc. While target specific are IOs that are
issued in the background by targets. Usually garbage collection actions.

For the target to issue garbage collection requests, it is a requirement
that a logical address is locked over two requests. One read and one
write. If a write to the logical address comes in from user-space, a
race-condition might occur and garbage collection will write out-dated
data.

By introducing this flag, the target can manually control locking of
logical addresses.
