Subject: [PATCH 01/19] iomap: better document the IOMAP_F_* flags
Date: Mon,  9 Sep 2019 20:27:04 +0200
Message-ID: <20190909182722.16783-2-hch@lst.de> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20190909182722.16783-1-hch@lst.de>

The documentation for IOMAP_F_* is a bit disorganized, and doesn't
mention the fact that most flags are set by the file system and consumed
by the iomap core, while IOMAP_F_SIZE_CHANGED is set by the core and
consumed by the file system.
