Commit Message

Ming Lei Nov. 15, 2018, 8:53 a.m. UTC
Since bdced438acd83ad83a6c ("block: setup bi_phys_segments after splitting"),
physical segment number is mainly figured out in blk_queue_split() for
fast path, and the flag of BIO_SEG_VALID is set there too.

Now only blk_recount_segments() and blk_recalc_rq_segments() use this
flag.

Basically blk_recount_segments() is bypassed in fast path given BIO_SEG_VALID
is set in blk_queue_split().

For another user of blk_recalc_rq_segments():

- run in partial completion branch of blk_update_request, which is an unusual case

- run in blk_cloned_rq_check_limits(), still not a big problem if the flag is killed
since dm-rq is the only user.

Multi-page bvec is enabled now, QUEUE_FLAG_NO_SG_MERGE doesn't make sense any more.

This commit message wasn't very clear. Is it the case that
QUEUE_FLAG_NO_SG_MERGE is no longer set by any drivers?

Can we rename __blk_recalc_rq_segments to blk_recalc_rq_segments
can kill the old blk_recalc_rq_segments now?

Otherwise looks fine:

I think he wants to say that not doing S/G merging is rather pointless
with the current setup of the I/O path, as it isn't going to save
you a significant amount of cycles.

OK, I will add the explanation to commit log in next version.

05f1dd53152173 (block: add queue flag for disabling SG merging) introduces this
flag for NVMe performance purpose only, so that merging to segment can
be bypassed for NVMe.

Actually this optimization was bypassed by 54efd50bfd873e2d (block: make
generic_make_request handle arbitrarily sized bios) and bdced438acd83ad83a6c
("block: setup bi_phys_segments after splitting").

Now segment computation can be very quick, given most of times one bvec
can be thought as one segment, so we can remove the flag.

thanks, 
Ming
