Merge tag 'for-4.16/dm-changes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/device-mapper/linux-dm
Pull device mapper updates from Mike Snitzer: - DM core fixes to ensure that bio submission follows a depth-first tree walk; this is critical to allow forward progress without the need to use the bioset's BIOSET_NEED_RESCUER. - Remove DM core's BIOSET_NEED_RESCUER based dm_offload infrastructure. - DM core cleanups and improvements to make bio-based DM more efficient (e.g. reduced memory footprint as well leveraging per-bio-data more). - Introduce new bio-based mode (DM_TYPE_NVME_BIO_BASED) that leverages the more direct IO submission path in the block layer; this mode is used by DM multipath and also optimizes targets like DM thin-pool that stack directly on NVMe data device. - DM multipath improvements to factor out legacy SCSI-only (e.g. scsi_dh) code paths to allow for more optimized support for NVMe multipath. - A fix for DM multipath path selectors (service-time and queue-length) to select paths in a more balanced way; largely academic but doesn't hurt. - Numerous DM raid target fixes and improvements. - Add a new DM "unstriped" target that enables Intel to workaround firmware limitations in some NVMe drives that are striped internally (this target also works when stacked above the DM "striped" target). - Various Documentation fixes and improvements. - Misc cleanups and fixes across various DM infrastructure and targets (e.g. bufio, flakey, log-writes, snapshot). * tag 'for-4.16/dm-changes' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/device-mapper/linux-dm: (69 commits) dm cache: Documentation: update default migration_throttling value dm mpath selector: more evenly distribute ties dm unstripe: fix target length versus number of stripes size check dm thin: fix trailing semicolon in __remap_and_issue_shared_cell dm table: fix NVMe bio-based dm_table_determine_type() validation dm: various cleanups to md->queue initialization code dm mpath: delay the retry of a request if the target responded as busy dm mpath: return DM_MAPIO_DELAY_REQUEUE if QUEUE_IO or PG_INIT_REQUIRED dm mpath: return DM_MAPIO_REQUEUE on blk-mq rq allocation failure dm log writes: fix max length used for kstrndup dm: backfill missing calls to mutex_destroy() dm snapshot: use mutex instead of rw_semaphore dm flakey: check for null arg_name in parse_features() dm thin: extend thinpool status format string with omitted fields dm thin: fixes in thin-provisioning.txt dm thin: document representation of <highest mapped sector> when there is none dm thin: fix documentation relative to low water mark threshold dm cache: be consistent in specifying sectors and SI units in cache.txt dm cache: delete obsoleted paragraph in cache.txt dm cache: fix grammar in cache-policies.txt ...
