>From falloc.h:

    FALLOC_FL_SEAL_BLOCK_MAP is used to seal (make immutable) all of the
    file logical-to-physical extent offset mappings in the file. The
    purpose is to allow an application to assume that there are no holes
    or shared extents in the file and that the metadata needed to find
    all the physical extents of the file is stable and can never be
    dirtied.

For now this patch only permits setting the in-memory state of
S_IOMAP_IMMMUTABLE. Support for clearing and persisting the state is
saved for later patches.

The implementation is careful to not allow the immutable state to change
while any process might have any established mappings. It reuses the
existing xfs_reflink_unshare() and xfs_alloc_file_space() to unshare
extents and fill all holes in the file. It then holds XFS_ILOCK_EXCL
while it validates the file is in the proper state and sets
S_IOMAP_IMMUTABLE.

SO I've been thinking about this - I'm thinking that we need to
separate the changes to the extent map from the action of sealing
the extent map.

That is, I have a need to freeze an extent map without any
modification to it at all and breaking all the sharing and filling
all the holes completely screws up the file layout I need to
preserve. i.e. I want to be able to freeze the maps of a pair of
reflinked files so I can use FIEMAP to query only the changed blocks
and then read out the data in the private/changed blocks in the
reflinked file. I only need a temporary seal (if we crash it goes
away), so maybe there's another command modifier flag needed here,
too.

The DAX allocation requirements can be handled by a preallocation
call to filll holes with zeros, followed by an unshare call to break
all the COW mappings, and then the extent map can be sealed. If you
need to check for holes after sealing, SEEK_HOLE will tell you what
you need to know...

My preference really is for each fallocate command to do just one
thing - having the seal operation also modify the extent map
means it's not useful for the use cases where we need the extent map
to remain unmodified....

Thoughts?

Cheers,

Dave.

That does seem to better follow the principle of least surprise and
make the interface more composable. However, for the DAX case do we
now end up needing a SEEK_SHARED, or something similar to check that
we sealed the file without shared extents?

Don't we have an inode attribute flag for that? There's definitely a
flag in the on disk XFS inode to indicate that there are shared
extents on the file.

Hmmmm - for some reason it's not exposed in FS_IOC_FSGETXATTR.
Darrick? Any reason we don't expose the "this file has shared
extents" flag to userspace? How are we checking that on-disk state
in xfstests?

As it is, if we're adding an immutable extent flag, we've got to be
able to query the immutable extent state of a file from userspace so
I'm thinking that we'd need to expose it via the same interface that
exposes the immutable flag. i.e. we could add the "shared extents
present" flag to FS_IOC_FSGETXATTR at the same time...

Cheers,

Dave.

Well, fiemap/bmap will tell you (presumably after you confirm that the
file got sealed or whatever) if there are shared extents.

We used to have a FSGETXATTR flag; iirc hch nak'd it during the review.

Iterating potentially hundreds of thousands of extents just to find
the one shared extent seems like crazy thing to ask people to do.

Ok, got a link? Seems strange to not be able to query this state
even for testing/validation purposes...

+/*
+ * FALLOC_FL_SEAL_BLOCK_MAP is used to seal (make immutable) all of the
+ * file logical-to-physical extent offset mappings in the file. The
+ * purpose is to allow an application to assume that there are no holes
+ * or shared extents in the file and that the metadata needed to find
+ * all the physical extents of the file is stable and can never be
+ * dirtied.
+ *
+ * The immutable property is in effect for the entire inode, so the
+ * range for this operation must start at offset 0 and len must be
+ * greater than or equal to the current size of the file. If greater,
+ * this operation allocates, unshares, and seals in one atomic step.
+ *
+ * This flag implies FALLOC_FL_UNSHARE_RANGE and as such cannot be used
+ * with the punch, zero, collapse, or insert range modes.
