[dm-devel] [PATCH 2/3] block: add request submission interface



This patch adds blk_insert_cloned_request(), a generic request
submission interface for request stacking drivers.
Request-based dm will use it to submit their clones to underlying
devices.

blk_rq_check_limits() is also added because it is possible that
the lower queue has stronger limitations than the upper queue
if multiple drivers are stacking at request-level.
Not only for blk_insert_cloned_request()'s internal use, the function
will be used by request-based dm when the queue limitation is
modified (e.g. by replacing dm's table).

+ * blk_rq_check_limits - Helper function to check a request for the queue limit
+ * @q:  the queue

+ *
+ * Description:
+ *    @rq may have been made based on weaker limitations of upper-level queues
+ *    in request stacking drivers, and it may violate the limitation of @q.
+ *    Since the block layer and the underlying device driver trust @rq
+ *    after it is inserted to @q, it should be checked against @q before
+ *    the insertion using this generic function.
+ *
+ *    This function should also be useful for request stacking drivers
+ *    in some cases below, so export this fuction.
+ *    Request stacking drivers like request-based dm may change the queue
+ *    limits while requests are in the queue (e.g. dm's table swapping).
+ *    Such request stacking drivers should check those requests agaist
+ *    the new queue limits again when they dispatch those requests,
+ *    although such checkings are also done against the old queue limits
+ *    when submitting requests.
