[dm-devel] [PATCH 1/3] dm-mpath: interface change for dynamic load balancers



This patch changes the dm path selector interface for dynamic
load balancers:
  o adding a new hook, start_io()
  o adding 'nr_bytes' parameter to select_path()/start_io()/end_io()
    to pass the size of the I/O

start_io() is called when a target driver actually submits I/O
to the selected path.
Path selectors can use it to start accounting of the I/O.
(e.g. counting the number of in-flight I/Os.)
The start_io hook is based on the patch posted by Stefan Bader:
https://www.redhat.com/archives/dm-devel/2005-October/msg00050.html

nr_bytes, the size of the I/O, is used by path selectors for
size-based decision.
dm-service-time uses it to estimate service time, for example.
(Added the nr_bytes member to dm_mpath_io instead of using existing
 details.bi_size, since request-based dm patch deletes it.)
