Subject: [PATCHSET 0/3] Add ability to save/restore iov_iter state
Date: Fri, 10 Sep 2021 12:25:33 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


Linus didn't particularly love the iov_iter->truncated addition and how
it was used, and it was hard to disagree with that. Instead of relying
on tracking ->truncated, add a few pieces of state so we can safely
handle partial or errored read/write attempts (that we want to retry).

Then we can get rid of the iov_iter addition, and at the same time
handle cases that weren't handled correctly before.

I've run this through vectored read/write with io_uring on the commonly
problematic cases (dm and low depth SCSI device) which trigger these
conditions often, and it seems to pass muster.
