Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] xen-blk(back|front): Let users disable persistent grants
Date: Tue, 22 Sep 2020 12:52:06 +0200
Message-ID: <20200922105209.5284-1-sjpark@amazon.com> (raw)

From: SeongJae Park <sjpark@amazon.de>

Persistent grants feature provides high scalability.  On some small
systems, however, it could incur data copy overheads[1] and thus it is
required to be disabled.  But, there is no option to disable it.  For
the reason, this commit adds module parameters for disabling of the
feature.
