Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH] Fix I/O counts in vmstat



Hi Mikulas,

How about convering dm targets to use generic_make_request?

Since submit_bio counts vm events, it seems natural for
caller to decide which function to use.
Device driver does not know whether the requested I/O is
for vm-to-device or device-to-device.
We could still use iostat to measure throughput of individual
block devices. 

Thanks,
