* rbd: introduce rados block device (rbd), based on libcephYehuda Sadeh2010-10-201-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | The rados block device (rbd), based on osdblk, creates a block device that is backed by objects stored in the Ceph distributed object storage cluster. Each device consists of a single metadata object and data striped over many data objects. The rbd driver supports read-only snapshots.

* osdblk: a Linux block device for OSD objectsJeff Garzik2009-06-241-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Submitted driver exports a block device of the form /dev/osdblkX, where X is a decimal number. It does that by mounting a stacking block device on top of an osd object. For example, if you create a 2G object on an OSD device, you can then use this module to present that 2G object as a Linux block device. See inside patch for exact documentation.

* mflash: initial supportunsik Kim2009-04-071-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This driver supports mflash IO mode for linux. Mflash is embedded flash drive and mainly targeted mobile and consumer electronic devices. Internally, mflash has nand flash and other hardware logics and supports 2 different operation (ATA, IO) modes. ATA mode doesn't need any new driver and currently works well under standard IDE subsystem. Actually it's one chip SSD. IO mode is ATA-like custom mode for the host that doesn't have IDE interface. Followings are brief descriptions about IO mode. A. IO mode based on ATA protocol and uses some custom command. (read confirm, write confirm) B. IO mode uses SRAM bus interface. C. IO mode supports 4kB boot area, so host can boot from mflash. This driver is quitely similar to a standard ATA driver, but because of following reasons it is currently seperated with ATA layer. 1. ATA layer deals standard ATA protocol. ATA layer have many low- level device specific interface, but data transfer keeps ATA rule. But, mflash IO mode doesn't. 2. Even though currently not used in mflash driver code, mflash has some custom command and modes. (nand fusing, firmware patch, etc) If this feature supported in linux kernel, ATA layer more altered. 3. Currently PATA platform device driver doesn't support interrupt. (I'm not sure) But, mflash uses interrupt (polling mode is just for debug). 4. mflash is somewhat under-develop product. Even though some company already using mflash their own product, I think more time is needed for standardization of custom command and mode. That time (maybe October) I will talk to with ATA people. If they accept integration, I will integrate.

* ps3/block: Replace mtd/ps3vram by block/ps3vramGeert Uytterhoeven2009-03-131-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Convert the PS3 Video RAM Storage Driver from an MTD driver to a plain block device driver. The ps3vram driver exposes unused video RAM on the PS3 as a block device suitable for storage or swap. Fast data transfer is achieved using a local cache in system RAM and DMA transfers via the GPU. The new driver is ca. 50% faster for reading, and ca. 10% for writing.

* rewrite rdNick Piggin2008-02-081-1/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | This is a rewrite of the ramdisk block device driver. The old one is really difficult because it effectively implements a block device which serves data out of its own buffer cache. It relies on the dirty bit being set, to pin its backing store in cache, however there are non trivial paths which can clear the dirty bit (eg. try_to_free_buffers()), which had recently lead to data corruption. And in general it is completely wrong for a block device driver to do this. The new one is more like a regular block device driver. It has no idea about vm/vfs stuff. It's backing store is similar to the buffer cache (a simple radix-tree of pages), but it doesn't know anything about page cache (the pages in the radix tree are not pagecache pages). There is one slight downside -- direct block device access and filesystem metadata access goes through an extra copy and gets stored in RAM twice. However, this downside is only slight, because the real buffercache of the device is now reclaimable (because we're not playing crazy games with it), so under memory intensive situations, footprint should effectively be the same -- maybe even a slight advantage to the new driver because it can also reclaim buffer heads. The fact that it now goes through all the regular vm/fs paths makes it much more useful for testing, too. text data bss dec hex filename 2837 849 384 4070 fe6 drivers/block/rd.o 3528 371 12 3911 f47 drivers/block/brd.o Text is larger, but data and bss are smaller, making total size smaller. A few other nice things about it: - Similar structure and layout to the new loop device handlinag. - Dynamic ramdisk creation. - Runtime flexible buffer head size (because it is no longer part of the ramdisk code). - Boot / load time flexible ramdisk size, which could easily be extended to a per-ramdisk runtime changeable size (eg. with an ioctl). - Can use highmem for the backing store.

* Remove old lguest bus and drivers.Rusty Russell2007-10-231-1/+0

* Block driver using virtio.Rusty Russell2007-10-231-0/+1
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | The block driver uses scatter-gather lists with sg[0] being the request information (struct virtio_blk_outhdr) with the type, sector and inbuf id. The next N sg entries are the bio itself, then the last sg is the status byte. Whether the N entries are in or out depends on whether it's a read or a write. We accept the normal (SCSI) ioctls: they get handed through to the other side which can then handle it or reply that it's unsupported. It's not clear that this actually works in general, since I don't know if blk_pc_request() requests have an accurate rq_data_dir(). Although we try to reply -ENOTTY on unsupported commands, ioctl(fd, CDROMEJECT) returns success to userspace. This needs a separate patch.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
