2008-12-29block: get rid of elevator_t typedefJens Axboe
Just use struct elevator_queue everywhere instead. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2008-10-09deadline-iosched: non-functional fixesAaron Carroll
* convert goto to simpler while loop; * use rq_end_sector() instead of computing manually; * fix false comments; * remove spurious whitespace; * convert rq_rb_root macro to an inline function. Signed-off-by: Aaron Carroll <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2008-10-09deadline-iosched: allow non-sequential batchingAaron Carroll
Deadline currently only batches sector-contiguous requests, so except for a few circumstances (e.g. requests in a single direction), it is essentially first come first served. This is bad for throughput, so change it to CSCAN, which means requests in a batch do not need to be sequential and are issued in increasing sector order.

2007-12-18block: let elv_register() return voidAdrian Bunk
elv_register() always returns 0, and there isn't anything it does where it should return an error (the only error condition is so grave that it's handled with a BUG_ON). Signed-off-by: Adrian Bunk <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2007-11-02Deadline iosched: Fix batching fairnessAaron Carroll
After switching data directions, deadline always starts the next batch from the lowest-sector request. This gives excessive deadline expiries and large latency and throughput disparity between high- and low-sector requests; an order of magnitude in some tests. This patch changes the batching behaviour so new batches start from the request whose expiry is earliest. Signed-off-by: Aaron Carroll <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2007-11-02Deadline iosched: Reset batch for ordered requestsAaron Carroll
The deadline I/O scheduler does not reset the batch count when starting a new batch at a higher-sectored request. This means the second and subsequent batch in the same data direction will never exceed a single request in size whenever higher-sectored requests are pending. This patch gives new batches in the same data direction as old ones their full quota of requests by resetting the batch count. Signed-off-by: Aaron Carroll <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2007-11-02Deadline iosched: Factor out finding latter requesAaron Carroll
Factor finding the next request in sector-sorted order into a function deadline_latter_request. Signed-off-by: Aaron Carroll <> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2007-07-24[BLOCK] Get rid of request_queue_t typedefJens Axboe
Some of the code has been gradually transitioned to using the proper struct request_queue, but there's lots left. So do a full sweet of the kernel and get rid of this typedef and replace its uses with the proper type. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2007-07-17Slab allocators: Replace explicit zeroing with __GFP_ZEROChristoph Lameter
kmalloc_node() and kmem_cache_alloc_node() were not available in a zeroing variant in the past. But with __GFP_ZERO it is possible now to do zeroing while allocating. Use __GFP_ZERO to remove the explicit clearing of memory via memset whereever we can. Signed-off-by: Christoph Lameter <> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2006-12-01[BLOCK] Cleanup unused variable passingJens Axboe
- ->init_queue() does not need the elevator passed in - ->put_request() is a hot path and need not have the queue passed in - cfq_update_io_seektime() does not need cfqd passed in Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2006-09-30[PATCH] Update email addressJens Axboe
As people often look for the copyright in files to see who to mail, update the link to a neutral one. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2006-09-30[PATCH] deadline-iosched: remove elevator private drq request typeJens Axboe
A big win, we now save an allocation/free on each request! With the previous rb/hash abstractions, we can just reuse queuelist/donelist for the FIFO data and be done with it. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2006-09-30[PATCH] deadline-iosched: migrate to using the elevator rb functionsJens Axboe
This removes the rbtree handling from deadline. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2006-09-30[PATCH] elevator: move the backmerging logic into the elevator coreJens Axboe
Right now, every IO scheduler implements its own backmerging (except for noop, which does no merging). That results in duplicated code for essentially the same operation, which is never a good thing. This patch moves the backmerging out of the io schedulers and into the elevator core. We save 1.6kb of text and as a bonus get backmerging for noop as well. Win-win! Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>

2006-06-23[PATCH] rbtree: support functions used by the io schedulersJens Axboe
They all duplicate macros to check for empty root and/or node, and clearing a node. So put those in rbtree.h. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <>
2006-06-23[PATCH] iosched: use hlist for request hashtableAkinobu Mita
Use hlist instead of list_head for request hashtable in deadline-iosched and as-iosched. It also can remove the flag to know hashed or unhashed.

2006-06-08[PATCH] elevator switching raceJens Axboe
There's a race between shutting down one io scheduler and firing up the next, in which a new io could enter and cause the io scheduler to be invoked with bad or NULL data. To fix this, we need to maintain the queue lock for a bit longer. Unfortunately we cannot do that, since the elevator init requires to be run without the lock held. This isn't easily fixable, without also changing the mempool API. So split the initialization into two parts, and alloc-init operation and an attach operation. Then we can preallocate the io scheduler and related structures, and run the attach inside the lock after we detach the old one. This patch has survived 30 minutes of 1 second io scheduler switching with a very busy io load. Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
2006-04-21[RBTREE] Change rbtree off-tree marking in I/O schedulers.David Woodhouse
They were abusing the rb_color field to mark nodes which weren't currently on the tree. Fix that to use the same method as eventpoll did -- setting the parent pointer to point back to itself. And use the appropriate accessor macros for setting and reading the parent. Signed-off-by: David Woodhouse <>
