* md: Add MD_MUSTDEALLOC supportKa Ho Ng2021-09-111-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | This adds an option to detect if hole-punching is implemented by the underlying file system. If this flag is set, and if the underlying file system does not support hole-punching, md(4) fails BIO_DELETE requests with EOPNOTSUPP.

* md(4): remove the unused and unusable MDIOCLIST ioctl.Brooks Davis2019-08-161-2/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | It is unused, the ABI was broken in r322969, and it is broken by design (more than MDNPAD md devices can exist and there is no way to retreive them with this interface). mdconfig(8) was converted to use libgeom to obtain this information in r157160 and any other consumers of MDIOCLIST should likewise be converted.

* Use VOP_ADVISE() with POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED instead of IO_DIRECT toBruce Evans2018-12-211-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | implement not double-caching for reads from vnode-backed md devices. Use VOP_ADVISE() similarly instead of !IO_DIRECT unsimilarly for writes. Add a "cache" option to mdconfig to allow changing the default of not caching. This depends on a recent commit to fix VOP_ADVISE(). A previous version had optimizations for sequential i/o's (merge the i/o's and only uncache for discontiguous i/o's and for full blocks), but optimizations and knowledge of block boundaries belong in VOP_ADVISE(). Read-ahead should also be handled better, by supporting it in md and discarding it in VOP_ADVISE(). POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED is ignored by zfs, but so is IO_DIRECT. POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED works better than IO_DIRECT if it is not ignored, since it only discards from the buffer cache immediately, while IO_DIRECT also discards from the page cache immediately. IO_DIRECT was not used for writes since it was claimed to be too slow, but most of the slowness for writes is from doing them synchronously by default. Non-synchronous writes still deadlock in many cases. IO_DIRECT only has a special implementation for ffs reads with DIRECTIO configured. Otherwise, if it is not ignored than it uses the buffer and page caches normally except for discarding everything after each i/o, and then it has much the same overheads as POSIX_FADV_DONTNEED. The overheads for reading with ffs and DIRECTIO were similar in tests of md. Reviewed by: kib Notes: svn path=/head/; revision=342297

* sys: further adoption of SPDX licensing ID tags.Pedro F. Giffuni2017-11-201-0/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Mainly focus on files that use BSD 3-Clause license. The Software Package Data Exchange (SPDX) group provides a specification to make it easier for automated tools to detect and summarize well known opensource licenses. We are gradually adopting the specification, noting that the tags are considered only advisory and do not, in any way, superceed or replace the license texts. Special thanks to Wind River for providing access to "The Duke of Highlander" tool: an older (2014) run over FreeBSD tree was useful as a starting point. Notes: svn path=/head/; revision=326023
* Add ability to label md(4) devices.Maxim Sobolev2017-08-281-1/+2
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This feature comes from the fact that we rely memory-backed md(4) in our build process heavily. However, if the build goes haywire the allocated resources (i.e. swap and memory-backed md(4)'s) need to be purged. It is extremely useful to have ability to attach arbitrary labels to each of the virtual disks so that they can be identified and GC'ed if neecessary.

* Fix a long-standing deadlock issue with vnode backed md(4) devices:Poul-Henning Kamp2004-03-101-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | On vnode backed md(4) devices over a certain, currently undetermined size relative to the buffer cache our "lemming-syncer" can provoke a buffer starvation which puts the md thread to sleep on wdrain. This generally tends to grind the entire system to a stop because the event that is supposed to wake up the thread will not happen until a fair bit of the piled up I/O requests in the system finish, and since a lot of those are on a md(4) vnode backed device which is currently waiting on wdrain until a fair amount of the piled up ... you get the picture. The cure is to issue all VOP_WRITES on the vnode backing the device with IO_SYNC. In addition to more closely emulating a real disk device with a non-lying write-cache, this makes the writes exempt from rate-limited (there to avoid starving the buffer cache) and consequently prevents the deadlock. Unfortunately performance takes a hit. Add "async" option to give people who know what they are doing the old behaviour. Notes: svn path=/head/; revision=126821

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | bypass some extra anti-foot-shooting measures. Currently, its only effect is to allow detaching a device while it's still open (e.g., mounted). This is useful for testing how the system reacts to a disk suddenly going away, which can happen with some removeable media. At this point, the force option is only checked on detach, so it would've been possible to allow the option to be passed with the MDIOCDETACH operation. This was not done to allow the possibility of having the force flag influence other tests in the future, which may not necessarily deal with detaching the device.

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | size != 512 that are configured without a label. The bug should only have effected swap-backed VN mounts without a label. Add several major features to VN. In the kernel we add a swap pre-reservation capability, which can be used to guarentee seek consistency for swap-backed VN nodes. This also incidently allows a swap-backed VN filesystem to be recovered after a crash in some cases (if the same swap blocks happen to be reserved). We also add a number of new options to vnconfig which do the work of pre-zeroing or creating/truncating/extending a file which greatly simplifies using VN in a file-backed configuration. Add FreeBSD CVS label to sys/sys/vnioctl.h, as well as a new ioctl flag for the swap pre-reservation feature.

NOTE: mounting root off cdrom or NFS MIGHT be broken as I haven't been able to test those cases.. certainly mounting root of disk still works just fine.. mfs should work but is untested. (tomorrows task) The low level init stuff includes a total rewrite of init_main.c to make it possible for new modules to have an init phase by simply adding an entry to a TEXT_SET (or is it DATA_SET) list. thus a new module can be added to the kernel without editing any other files other than the 'files' file.
