Subject: [PATCH 3/8] nowait aio: return if direct write will trigger writeback
Date: Wed, 15 Mar 2017 16:51:02 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20170315215107.5628-4-rgoldwyn@suse.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170315215107.5628-1-rgoldwyn@suse.de>

From: Goldwyn Rodrigues <rgoldwyn@suse.com>

Find out if the write will trigger a wait due to writeback. If yes,
return -EAGAIN.

This introduces a new function filemap_range_has_page() which
returns true if the file's mapping has a page within the range
mentioned.

Return -EINVAL for buffered AIO: there are multiple causes of
delay such as page locks, dirty throttling logic, page loading
from disk etc. which cannot be taken care of.
