Subject[PATCH v2 20/51] block: introduce multipage/single page bvec helpers
Date
This patch introduces helpers which are suffixed with _mp
and _sp for the multipage bvec/segment support.

The helpers with _mp suffix are the interfaces for treating
one bvec/segment as real multipage one, for example, .bv_len
is the total length of the multipage segment.

The helpers with _sp suffix are interfaces for supporting
current bvec iterator which is thought as singlepage only
by drivers, fs, dm and etc. These _sp helpers are introduced
to build singlepage bvec in flight, so users of bio/bvec
iterator still can work well and needn't change even though
we store multipage into bvec.

/*
+ * What is multipage bvecs(segment)?
+ *
+ * - bvec stored in bio->bi_io_vec is always multipage style vector
+ *
+ * - bvec(struct bio_vec) represents one physically contiguous I/O
+ * buffer, now the buffer may include more than one pages since
+ * multipage(mp) bvec is supported, and all these pages represented
+ * by one bvec is physically contiguous. Before mp support, at most
+ * one page can be included in one bvec, we call it singlepage(sp)
+ * bvec.
+ *
+ * - .bv_page of th bvec represents the 1st page in the mp segment
+ *
+ * - .bv_offset of the bvec represents offset of the buffer in the bvec
+ *
+ * The effect on the current drivers/filesystem/dm/bcache/...:
+ *
+ * - almost everyone supposes that one bvec only includes one single
+ * page, so we keep the sp interface not changed, for example,
+ * bio_for_each_segment() still returns bvec with single page
+ *
+ * - bio_for_each_segment_all() will be changed to return singlepage
+ * bvec too
+ *
+ * - during iterating, iterator variable(struct bvec_iter) is always
+ * updated in multipage bvec style and that means bvec_iter_advance()
+ * is kept not changed
+ *
+ * - returned(copied) singlepage bvec is generated in flight by bvec
+ * helpers from the stored mp bvec
+ *
+ * - In case that some components(such as iov_iter) need to support mp
+ * segment, we introduce new helpers(suffixed with _mp) for them.
