Re: [dm-devel] [PATCH 6/7] dm: track the maximum number of bios in a cloned request



There's a race condition (it's not serious):

+               if (num_bios > ACCESS_ONCE(peak_rq_based_ios))
+                       ACCESS_ONCE(peak_rq_based_ios) = num_bios;

You can double-check it using code like this:
if (num_bios > ACCESS_ONCE(peak_rq_based_ios)) {
	spin_lock_irqsave(&peak_rq_based_ios_lock, flags);
	if (num_bios > peak_rq_based_ios)
		peak_rq_based_ios = num_bios;
	spin_unlock_irqrestore(&peak_rq_based_ios_lock, flags);
}


Maybe - reset the value peak_rq_based_ios if the user clears 
track_peak_rq_based_ios?
