2017-06-29libnvdimm, btt: BTT updates for UEFI 2.7 formatVishal Verma1-0/+1
The UEFI 2.7 specification defines an updated BTT metadata format, bumping the revision to 2.0. Add support for the new format, while retaining compatibility for the old 1.1 format.

2017-06-15libnvdimm, label: add address abstraction identifiersDan Williams1-0/+5
Starting with v1.2 labels, 'address abstractions' can be hinted via an address abstraction id that implies an info-block format. The standard address abstraction in the specification is the v2 format of the Block-Translation-Table (BTT). Support for that is saved for a later patch, for now we add support for the Linux supported address abstractions BTT (v1), PFN, and DAX. The new 'holder_class' attribute for namespace devices is added for tooling to specify the 'abstraction_guid' to store in the namespace label. For v1.1 labels this field is undefined and any setting of 'holder_class' away from the default 'none' value will only have effect until the driver is unloaded. Setting 'holder_class' requires that whatever device tries to claim the namespace must be of the specified class.

2017-06-15libnvdimm, label: add v1.2 nvdimm label definitionsDan Williams1-2/+13
In support of improved interoperability between operating systems and pre-boot environments the Intel proposed NVDIMM Namespace Specification [1], has been adopted and modified to the the UEFI 2.7 NVDIMM Label Protocol [2]. Update the definitions of the namespace label data structures so that the new format can be supported alongside the existing label format. The new specification changes the default label size to 256 bytes, so everywhere that relied on sizeof(struct nd_namespace_label) must now use the sizeof_namespace_label() helper. There should be no functional differences from these changes as the default is still the v1.1 128-byte format. Future patches will move the default to the v1.2 definition.

2015-06-24libnvdimm: write blk label setDan Williams1-0/+5
After 'uuid', 'size', 'sector_size', and optionally 'alt_name' have been set to valid values the labels on the dimm can be updated. The difference with the pmem case is that blk namespaces are limited to one dimm and can cover discontiguous ranges in dpa space. Also, after allocating label slots, it is useful for userspace to know how many slots are left. Export this information in sysfs.

2015-06-24libnvdimm: write pmem label setDan Williams1-0/+6
After 'uuid', 'size', and optionally 'alt_name' have been set to valid values the labels on the dimms can be updated. Write procedure is: 1/ Allocate and write new labels in the "next" index 2/ Free the old labels in the working copy 3/ Write the bitmap and the label space on the dimm 4/ Write the index to make the update valid Label ranges directly mirror the dpa resource values for the given label_id of the namespace.

2015-06-24libnvdimm: pmem label sets and namespace instantiation.Dan Williams1-0/+2
A complete label set is a PMEM-label per-dimm per-interleave-set where all the UUIDs match and the interleave set cookie matches the hosting interleave set. Present sysfs attributes for manipulation of a PMEM-namespace's 'alt_name', 'uuid', and 'size' attributes. A later patch will make these settings persistent by writing back the label. Note that PMEM allocations grow forwards from the start of an interleave set (lowest dimm-physical-address (DPA)). BLK-namespaces that alias with a PMEM interleave set will grow allocations backward from the highest DPA.

2015-06-24libnvdimm: namespace indices: read and validateDan Williams1-0/+128
This on media label format [1] consists of two index blocks followed by an array of labels. None of these structures are ever updated in place. A sequence number tracks the current active index and the next one to write, while labels are written to free slots. +------------+ | | | nsindex0 | | | +------------+ | | | nsindex1 | | | +------------+ | label0 | +------------+ | label1 | +------------+ | | ....nslot... | | +------------+ | labelN | +------------+ After reading valid labels, store the dpa ranges they claim into per-dimm resource trees.
