Merge tag 'dm-4.6-changes' of git://
Pull device mapper updates from Mike Snitzer: - Most attention this cycle went to optimizing blk-mq request-based DM (dm-mq) that is used exclussively by DM multipath: - A stable fix for dm-mq that eliminates excessive context switching offers the biggest performance improvement (for both IOPs and throughput). - But more work is needed, during the next cycle, to reduce spinlock contention in DM multipath on large NUMA systems. - A stable fix for a NULL pointer seen when DM stats is enabled on a DM multipath device that must requeue an IO due to path failure. - A stable fix for DM snapshot to disallow the COW and origin devices from being identical. This amounts to graceful failure in the face of userspace error because these devices shouldn't ever be identical. - Stable fixes for DM cache and DM thin provisioning to address crashes seen if/when their respective metadata device experiences failures that cause the transition to 'fail_io' mode. - The DM cache 'mq' policy is now an alias for the 'smq' policy. The 'smq' policy proved to be consistently better than 'mq'. As such 'mq', with all its complex user-facing tunables, has been eliminated. - Improve DM thin provisioning to consistently return -ENOSPC once the thin-pool's data volume is out of space. - Improve DM core to properly handle error propagation if bio_integrity_clone() fails in clone_bio(). - Other small cleanups and improvements to DM core. * tag 'dm-4.6-changes' of git:// (41 commits) dm: fix rq_end_stats() NULL pointer in dm_requeue_original_request() dm thin: consistently return -ENOSPC if pool has run out of data space dm cache: bump the target version dm cache: make sure every metadata function checks fail_io dm: add missing newline between DM_DEBUG_BLOCK_STACK_TRACING and DM_BUFIO dm cache policy smq: clarify that mq registration failure was for 'mq' dm: return error if bio_integrity_clone() fails in clone_bio() dm thin metadata: don't issue prefetches if a transaction abort has failed dm snapshot: disallow the COW and origin devices from being identical dm cache: make the 'mq' policy an alias for 'smq' dm: drop unnecessary assignment of md->queue dm: reorder 'struct mapped_device' members to fix alignment and holes dm: remove dummy definition of 'struct dm_table' dm: add 'dm_numa_node' module parameter dm thin metadata: remove needless newline from subtree_dec() DMERR message dm mpath: cleanup reinstate_path() et al based on code review dm mpath: remove __pgpath_busy forward declaration, rename to pgpath_busy dm mpath: switch from 'unsigned' to 'bool' for flags where appropriate dm round robin: use percpu 'repeat_count' and 'current_path' dm path selector: remove 'repeat_count' return from .select_path hook ...
