From: Omar Sandoval <>

This is v4 of the patch series to turn blk-mq's scalable tag allocation
into a generic library, fixing a few bugs along the way. This is both
cleanup and preparation for coming blk-mq work.

v1 is here [1], v2 is here [2], v3 is here [3].

Changes in v4:

- Added patch 6 to fix a bug in blk-mq where shrinking the tag set
  doesn't stop allocations from happening to high tags.
- Changed the interface for raw `sbitmap_get()` to pass the allocation
  hint as a value, not a pointer. This pushes the hint updating out into
  `sbitmap_queue_get()` where it makes more sense.

Changes in v3:

- Renamed scale_bitmap to sbitmap

Changes in v2:

- Return -EINVAL instead of BUG_ON() if an invalid shift is passed to
  the initialization functions.
- Rename last_cache to alloc_hint.
- Split the wait queue allocation change into a separate patch. Patch 1
  should now be a no-op.
- Add patches 3 and 4 to make the API cleaner by pushing some context
  from the blk-mq data structures into the common scale_bitmap code.
- Add patch 5 to randomize the allocation hint on initialization like

Applies to v4.8-rc6.



Omar Sandoval (6):
  blk-mq: abstract tag allocation out into sbitmap library
  sbitmap: allocate wait queues on a specific node
  sbitmap: push per-cpu last_tag into sbitmap_queue
  sbitmap: push alloc policy into sbitmap_queue
  sbitmap: randomize initial alloc_hint values
  sbitmap: re-initialize allocation hints after resize
