[dm-devel] [PATCH] Add gfp_mask to bio_integrity_clone()



Hi Martin,

What do you think about adding gfp_mask parameter to bio_integrity_clone()
like the attached patch?

Kiyoshi Ueda and I are working on request-based device-mapper (*1)
and it clones bios like the existing bio-based dm.
However, since the request cloning may happen in interrupt context,
GFP_ATOMIC is used in our case (*2).

(*1) http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/10/3/177
(*2) http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/10/3/188

To cope with cloning the integrity payload,
we want to pass gfp_mask to bio_integrity_clone().

It also seems natural to inherit gfp_mask from bio_clone when
bio_integrity_clone is called from it.
Since bio_clone() is the only caller of bio_integrity_clone() in 2.6.28-rc2
and all in-tree callers of bio_clone() are using GFP_NOIO,
the patch does nothing other than changing the interface.


Add gfp_mask parameter to bio_integrity_clone().

Stricter gfp_mask might be required for clone allocation.
For example, request-based dm may clone bio in interrupt context
so it has to use GFP_ATOMIC.
