Commit Message

Sergei Shtepa April 21, 2021, 4:45 p.m. UTC
A new 'DM_INTERPOSE_FLAG' flag allows to specify that a DM target should
be attached via blk_interposer. This flag defines the value of the
'interpose' flag in a mapped_device structure. The 'interpose' flag in
the dm_dev structure indicates which device in the device table is
attached via blk_interposer.

To safely attach a DM target to blk_interposer, the DM target must be
fully initialized. Immediately after attaching to blk_interposer,
the DM device can receive bio requests and those must be processed.
Therefore, the connection is performed in the __dm_resume() function.

To safely detach a DM target from blk_interposer, the DM target must be
suspended. Only in this case we can be sure that all DM target requests
have been processed. Therefore, detaching from blk_interposer is called
from the __dm_suspend() function. However, we must lock the request queue
from the original device before calling __dm_suspend(). That is why
the locking of the queue of the original device is made as a separate
function.

A new dm_get_device_ex() function can be used instead of
dm_get_device() if we need to specify the 'interposer' flag for dm_dev.
The old dm_get_device() function sets the 'interposer' flag to false.
It allows to not change every DM target. At the same time, the new
function allows to explicitly specify which block devices and in which
DM targets can be attached via blk_interposer.
