RBD devices are currently incorrectly initialised with the block queue
discard_alignment set to the underlying RADOS object size.

As per Documentation/ABI/testing/sysfs-block:
  The discard_alignment parameter indicates how many bytes the beginning
  of the partition is offset from the internal allocation unit's natural
  alignment.

Correcting the discard_alignment parameter from the RADOS object size to
zero has no effect on how discard requests are propagated through the
block layer - @alignment in __blkdev_issue_discard() remains zero.
However, it does fix the UNMAP granularity alignment value advertised
to SCSI initiators via the Block Limits VPD.

Hi David,

Yeah, discard_alignment == discard_granularity seems bogus.  The name
is misleading too, but that probably comes from SBC, which talks about
OPTIMAL UNMAP GRANULARITY and UNMAP GRANULARITY ALIGNMENT.

0 is the default -- let's just drop discard_alignment assignment?
Also, you quoted <disk>/<partition>/discard_alignment description, but
this is about <disk>/discard_alignment.  This had me confused for
a moment.

Thanks,

                Ilya

Works for me, if you'd prefer. I'll send through a v2 with this.

Oops, my bad. Will use the <disk> only description in the next round.

Cheers, David
