Subject: [PATCH v2 2/4] bdi: introduce BDI_CAP_SYNCHRONOUS_IO
Date: Wed, 20 Sep 2017 14:43:23 +0900
Message-ID: <1505886205-9671-3-git-send-email-minchan@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <1505886205-9671-1-git-send-email-minchan@kernel.org>

By discussion[1], someday we will remove rw_page function. If so, we need
something to detect such super-fast storage which synchronous IO operation
like current rw_page is always win.

This patch introduces BDI_CAP_SYNCHRONOUS_IO to indicate such devices.
With it, we could use various optimization techniques.
