2011-10-24fs/9p: Update zero-copy implementation in 9pAneesh Kumar K.V1-18/+3
* remove lot of update to different data structure * add a seperate callback for zero copy request. * above makes non zero copy code path simpler * remove conditionalizing TREAD/TREADDIR/TWRITE in the zero copy path * Fix the dotu p9_check_errors with zero copy. Add sufficient doc around * Add support for both in and output buffers in zero copy callback * pin and unpin pages in the same context * use helpers instead of defining page offset and rest of page ourself * Fix mem leak in p9_check_errors * Remove 'E' and 'F' in p9pdu_vwritef Signed-off-by: Aneesh Kumar K.V <aneesh.kumar@linux.vnet.ibm.com> Signed-off-by: Eric Van Hensbergen <ericvh@gmail.com>

2011-03-15[net/9p] Preparation and helper functions for zero copyVenkateswararao Jujjuri (JV)1-0/+29
This patch prepares p9_fcall structure for zero copy. Added fields send the payload buffer information to the transport layer. In addition it adds a 'private' field for the transport layer to store mapped/pinned page information so that it can be freed/unpinned during req_done. This patch also creates trans_common.[ch] to house helper functions. It adds the following helper functions. p9_release_req_pages - Release pages after the transaction. p9_nr_pages - Return number of pages needed to accomodate the payload. payload_gup - Translates user buffer into kernel pages.
