parentorangefs: add orangefs_revalidate_mapping (diff)
orangefs: remember count when reading.
Orangefs wins when it can do IO on large (up to four meg) blocks at a time, and looses when it has to do tiny "small io" reads and writes. Accessing Orangefs through the pagecache with the kernel module helps with small io, both reading and writing, a great deal. Readpage generally tries to fetch a page (four k) at a time. We'll let users use "count" (as in read(2) or pread(2) for example) as a knob to control how much data they get from Orangefs at a time and we'll try to use the data to fill extra pagecache pages when we get to ->readpage, hopefully resulting in fewer calls to readpage and Orangefs userspace. We need a way to remember how they set count so that we can still have it available when we get to ->readpage. - We'll use file->private_data to keep track of "count". We'll wrap generic_file_open with orangefs_file_open and initialize private_data to NULL there. - In ->read_iter we have access to both "count" and file, so we'll kmalloc some space onto file->private_data and store "count" there. - We'll kfree file->private_data each time we visit ->flush and reinitialize it to NULL.
