In patch 1 you introduce bio_segments_all() with the log message 'So
that we can replace the direct access to .bi_vcnt.' Here you introduce a
new direct access to it (plus the duplicated WARN_ON_ONCE()).

Maybe use the helper directly here (I admit I haven't gone through the
whole series yet, so I can't see if the change is made later).

Byte,

Firstly MD does need one helper to remove the last added page, as you
can see there are three such uses in patch3.

Secondly both the two helpers will be changed once multipage bvec
is supported, that means we have to change MD too after multipage bvec
if just using bio_segments_all() to replace .bi_vcnt for removing
the last added page.

I'm not sure if we're talking past each other here, I assumed you'd do
something like:

void bio_remove_last_page(struct bio *bio)
{
	int vcnt = bio_segments_all(bio);

	if (bio_flagged(bio, BIO_CLONED))
		return;

	if (vcnt > 0) {
		struct bio_vec *bv = &bio->bi_io_vec[vcnt - 1];

		bio->bi_iter.bi_size -= bv->bv_len;
		bio->bi_vcnt--;
	}
}

What we are doing is to remove the external direct access to bvec
table in drivers or filesystems because they may misuse that, for
example, drivers often use .bi_vcnt to get the page count in the bio,
but the actual meaning is just bvec's count.

And the implementation in block layer still need to play the table directly,
especially for sake of efficiency, cause we understand the details and won't
misuse that.

Ah OK, so bio_segments_all() is intended for drivers.

Thanks for the clarification,
