2010-09-24block: Prevent hang_check firing during long I/OMark Lord1-1/+8
During long I/O operations, the hang_check timer may fire, trigger stack dumps that unnecessarily alarm the user. Eg. hdparm --security-erase NULL /dev/sdb ## can take *hours* to complete So, if hang_check is armed, we should wake up periodically to prevent it from triggering. This patch uses a wake-up interval equal to half the hang_check timer period, which keeps overhead low enough.

2010-08-07block: remove wrappers for request type/flagsChristoph Hellwig1-1/+1
Remove all the trivial wrappers for the cmd_type and cmd_flags fields in struct requests. This allows much easier grepping for different request types instead of unwinding through macros. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Jens Axboe <jaxboe@fusionio.com>
2009-04-28block: don't set REQ_NOMERGE unnecessarilyTejun Heo1-1/+0
RQ_NOMERGE_FLAGS already clears defines which REQ flags aren't mergeable. There is no reason to specify it superflously. It only adds to confusion. Don't set REQ_NOMERGE for barriers and requests with specific queueing directive. REQ_NOMERGE is now exclusively used by the merging code. [ Impact: cleanup ] Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org>

2008-07-15block: handle blk_pm_resume_request() requests in blk_execute_rq_nowait()Bartlomiej Zolnierkiewicz1-0/+3
For blk_pm_resume_request() requests (which are used only by IDE subsystem currently) the queue is stopped so we need to call ->request_fn explicitly. Thanks to: - Rafael for reporting/bisecting the bug - Borislav/Rafael for testing the fix This is a preparation for converting IDE to use blk_execute_rq().
