      fuse: improve aio directIO write performance for size extending writes · 7879c4e5
      Ashish Sangwan authored
      
      
      While sending the blocking directIO in fuse, the write request is broken
      into sub-requests, each of default size 128k and all the requests are sent
      in non-blocking background mode if async_dio mode is supported by libfuse.
      The process which issue the write wait for the completion of all the
      sub-requests. Sending multiple requests parallely gives a chance to perform
      parallel writes in the user space fuse implementation if it is
      multi-threaded and hence improves the performance.
      
      When there is a size extending aio dio write, we switch to blocking mode so
      that we can properly update the size of the file after completion of the
      writes. However, in this situation all the sub-requests are sent in
      serialized manner where the next request is sent only after receiving the
      reply of the current request. Hence the multi-threaded user space
      implementation is not utilized properly.
      
      This patch changes the size extending aio dio behavior to exactly follow
      blocking dio. For multi threaded fuse implementation having 10 threads and
      using buffer size of 64MB to perform async directIO, we are getting double
      the speed.

      fuse: serialize dirops by default · 5c672ab3

      Negotiate with userspace filesystems whether they support parallel readdir
      and lookup.  Disable parallelism by default for fear of breaking fuse
      filesystems.

      Pull SCSI fixes from James Bottomley:
       "Two straightforward fixes.
      
        One is a concurrency issue only affecting SAS connected SATA drives,
        but which could hang the storage subsystem if it triggers (because the
        outstanding command count on error never goes back to zero) and the
        other is a NO_TAG fallout from the switch to hostwide tags which
        causes the system to crash on module insertion (we've checked
        carefully and only the 53c700 family of drivers is vulnerable to this
        issue)"
