[dm-devel] [PATCH v5 3/7] block: Introduce elevator features



Introduce the definition of elevator features through the
elevator_features flags in the elevator_type structure. Each flag can
represent a feature supported by an elevator. The first feature defined
by this patch is support for zoned block device sequential write
constraint with the flag ELEVATOR_F_ZBD_SEQ_WRITE, which is implemented
by the mq-deadline elevator using zone write locking.

Other possible features are IO priorities, write hints, latency targets
or single-LUN dual-actuator disks (for which the elevator could maintain
one LBA ordered list per actuator).

The required_elevator_features field is also added to the request_queue
structure to allow a device driver to specify elevator feature flags
that an elevator must support for the correct operation of the device
(e.g. device drivers for zoned block devices can have the
ELEVATOR_F_ZBD_SEQ_WRITE flag as a required feature).
The helper function blk_queue_required_elevator_features() is
defined for setting this new field.

With these two new fields in place, the elevator functions
elevator_match() and elevator_find() are modified to allow a user to set
only an elevator with a set of features that satisfies the device
required features. Elevators not matching the device requirements are
not shown in the device sysfs queue/scheduler file to prevent their use.

The "none" elevator can always be selected as before.
