This patchset is attempt to add CoW support for fsdax, and take XFS, which has both reflink and fsdax feature, as an example.
Changes from V8: - Rebased on v5.15-rc1 - Patch 4: Add a pre patch to convert dax_iomap_zero to iter model - Patch 6&7: Remove EXPORT_SYMBOL - Patch 8: Solve the conflict caused by rebase - Fix code style problems, add comment One of the key mechanism need to be implemented in fsdax is CoW. Copy the data from srcmap before we actually write data to the destance iomap. And we just copy range in which data won't be changed. Another mechanism is range comparison. In page cache case, readpage() is used to load data on disk to page cache in order to be able to compare data. In fsdax case, readpage() does not work. So, we need another compare data with direct access support. With the two mechanisms implemented in fsdax, we are able to make reflink and fsdax work together in XFS. (Rebased on v5.15-rc1) == Shiyang Ruan (8): fsdax: Output address in dax_iomap_pfn() and rename it fsdax: Introduce dax_iomap_cow_copy() fsdax: Replace mmap entry in case of CoW fsdax: Convert dax_iomap_zero to iter model fsdax: Add dax_iomap_cow_copy() for dax_iomap_zero fsdax: Dedup file range to use a compare function xfs: support CoW in fsdax mode xfs: Add dax dedupe support fs/dax.c | 284 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++-------- fs/iomap/buffered-io.c | 3 +- fs/remap_range.c | 31 ++++- fs/xfs/xfs_bmap_util.c | 3 +- fs/xfs/xfs_file.c | 8 +- fs/xfs/xfs_inode.c | 80 +++++++++++- fs/xfs/xfs_inode.h | 1 + fs/xfs/xfs_iomap.c | 38 +++++- fs/xfs/xfs_iomap.h | 30 +++++ fs/xfs/xfs_iops.c | 7 +- fs/xfs/xfs_reflink.c | 15 ++- include/linux/dax.h | 11 +- include/linux/fs.h | 12 +- 13 files changed, 438 insertions(+), 85 deletions(-) -- 2.33.0
