Bart suggested we add docs for the degugfs_mutex, while at it I noticed
we don't have a nice way to add docs for members of the request_queue so
I figured I'd add one as I drive by.

Come bike shed with me.

We start off with an initial description of the request_queue data
structure, followed by describing the purpose of the debugfs_mutex
debugfs_dir, and blk_trace.

Now that we have a template, expand on the kdoc form for
the request_queue data structure with documentation from
the rest of the members, *only* for information we already
had.

This does not add any new documentation. This just shifts
documentation to kdoc form.

Isn't this second one BIO based drivers, like device-mapper BIO targets ?

The SG driver does not create a request queue, it uses the one of the scsi
device created by the scsi stack. Is this what you mean here ? Saying
scsi-generic kind of implies sg driver.

Ooops... This is outdated... This should be:

* Dispatch of write commands to zoned block devices is controlled using the
* fields @nr_zones, @conv_zones_bitmap and @seq_zones_wlock. These fields are
* initialized using the blk_revalidate_disk_zones() function from the level
* request based device drivers (e.g. scsi/sd.c).  BIO based drivers, if needed,
* can initialize these fields directly. Accesses to these fields must be
* protected with blk_queue_enter() / blk_queue_exit(). Modification of the
* @nr_zones field and reallocation of the @conv_zones_bitmap and
* @seq_zones_wlock bitmaps is only allowed while no requests are being
* processed. See also blk_mq_freeze_queue() and blk_mq_unfreeze_queue().

I don't think the differentiation between singlequeue and 
multiqueue is usefull, given that the single queue block layer
is gone for quite some time now.

This line is duplicated and one of dups has a typo 'ebugfs_dir'

Since request queues are used as a communication channel between the
block layer core and block drivers and since the block layer core
creates request queues, I propose to leave out the word "driver".

"incoming" is correct from the perspective of the block driver but not
from the perspective of the block layer core. How about describing
request queues as a communication channel between the block layer core
and block drivers?

Thanks,

Bart.

To me the description "software queues" is much more clear than
"software queue context". I wouldn't mind if the queue_ctx member
variable would be renamed to make its role more clear.

Please also mention that there is one software queue per CPU.

> + * @queue_hw_ctx: hw dispatch queues

How about mentioning that requests flow from software queues into
hardware queues, from hardware queues to the storage controller and also
that the block driver controls the number of hardware queues?

How about changing "queue owner" into "block driver"? Please leave out
the reference to ll_rw_blk since that source file was removed in 2008.
See also commit a168ee84c90b ("block: first step of splitting ll_rw_blk,
rename it").

It seems to me that this ID is not only used to associate an ioctx with
a request queue but also to associate a block cgroup with a request
queue? See also blkg_lookup_slowpath().

> + * @bounce_gfp: queue needs bounce pages for pages above this limit

Please mention the path of this object, namely /sys/block/${bdev}/queue.

> + * @mq_kobj: mq queue kobject

Please mention the path of this object too, namely /sys/block/${bdev}/mq.

> + * @nr_requests: maximum number of of requests

Double "of"? Please mention that this is the maximum number of requests
per hardware queue. There is one set of tags per hardware queue and each
hardware queue has 'nr_requests' tags. See also queue_requests_store()
and blk_mq_update_nr_requests().

"@nr_zones" occurs twice?

Double "@debugfs_mutex"?

Thanks,

Bart.
