This helper is useful for any driver that wants to create a scatterlist from its ->make_request_fn method.This may not be possible but I really wanna avoid having two copies of that complex logic. Any chance blk_rq_map_bio() can be implemented in a way that allows blk_rq_map_sg() can be built on top of it? Also,Was thinking the same thing, definitely code we don't want to have duplicated. We've had mapping bugs in the past. Asias, this should be trivial to do, except that blk_rq_map_sg() potentially maps across bio's as well. The tracking of the prev bio_vec does not care about cross bio boundaries.
Sure. I will try this and send v2. -- Asias _______________________________________________ Virtualization mailing list Virtualization@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/virtualization
