Subject: [PATCH v3] mkfs: Break block discard into chunks of 2 GB
Date: Thu, 28 Nov 2019 07:21:39 +0100
Message-ID: <20191128062139.93218-1-preichl@redhat.com> (raw)

Some users are not happy about the BLKDISCARD taking too long and at the same
time not being informed about that - so they think that the command actually
hung.

This commit changes code so that progress reporting is possible and also typing
the ^C will cancel the ongoing BLKDISCARD.
