[dm-devel] [PATCH] dm-target.c: simplify target_type to avoid kmalloc



From: Cheng Renquan <crquan gmail com>

Move the list_head from tt_internal into struct target_type embedded,
The struct tt_internal is totally unneeded, and the kmalloc is avoided,
block of memory copy is also avoided, like the original:

  -		ti->tt = *t;

the function of tt_internal's use field is replaced by the module's
reference count.

The only defect is that dm_register_target users cannot use const
target_type anymore.

I have simply tested it, that seems work well till now.

I found multi places in device-mapper code that kmalloc and vmalloc are over
used, if this would be applied, I want to start a series of dm patches to
improve them.
