Subject: [PATCH V4] libxfs: use FALLOC_FL_ZERO_RANGE in libxfs_device_zero
Date: Tue, 25 Feb 2020 10:13:55 -0800
Message-ID: <1c7c39f7-91a7-be85-5906-e55180a91a5f@sandeen.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <4bc3be27-b09d-a708-f053-6f7240642667@sandeen.net>

I had a request from someone who cared about mkfs speed over
a slower network block device to look into using faster zeroing
methods, particularly for the log, during mkfs.

Using FALLOC_FL_ZERO_RANGE is faster in this case than writing
a bunch of zeros across a wire.

V2: Clean up all the nasty stuff I'd flung out there as a wild first
cut, thanks Dave.

V3: make len_bytes a size_t; leave "end_offset" where it is for the loop
use.  It's a bit odd but ... just don't mess with it for now, one patch
one change.

V4: Use EOPNOTSUPP not EOPNOTSUP (same on linux anyway but meh)
I ignored(tm) darrick's suggestion to make libxfs_device_zero accept
a longer length, for now - no callers need anything bigger at this time.
