Subject: [PATCH V15 1/5] block: export blk_next_bio()
Date: Wed,  9 Jun 2021 18:32:48 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <>

The block layer provides emulation of zone management operations
targeting all zones of a zoned block device only for the zone reset
operation (REQ_OP_ZONE_RESET). In order to correctly implement
exporting of zoned block devices with NVMeOF, emulating zone management
operations targeting all zones of a device is also necessary for the
open, close and finish zone operations (REQ_OP_ZONE_OPEN,

Instead of duplicating the code, export the existing helper from block
layer so we can use a bio chaining pattern that is present in the block
layer for REQ_OP_ZONE RESET all emulation in the NVMeOF zoned block
device backend.
