Hi All,


   Can this patch be fixed?

   Clean up the unsed code on fs/super.c, all filesystem using mount_bdev
   and mount_nodev to replace get_sb_bdev and get_sb_nodev.

There might easily be external modules that still use this.

Also, if you do this, then the same patch would also need to remove
the declarations and the documentation entry, so that there is no sign
at all of those functions in the whole kernel tree.

The documentation update should just state that previous users of
get_sb_bdev() and get_sb_bdev() can and should just use mount_bdev()
and mount_nodev() instead.  The lines of code in the get_sb_*()
functions that do this:

	  mnt->mnt_root = root;
	  mnt->mnt_sb = root->d_sb;

Actually aren't necessary, since these functions are used in a
filesystem's file_system_type->mount() function, and vfs_kern_mount(),
which calls the type->mount() function, already does the above call.

So telling external modules that if you use get_sb_bdev(), you should
use mount_bdev() instead, should be just fine.

They would be trivial to convert from ->get_sb() to ->mount(), but until
we are ready to remove the former (next cycle, once ->mnt_devname stuff
gets tested and merged) there's no real reason to remove them.  Precisely
because the remaining instances of get_sb_bdev() and friends will be
trivial to remove when the time comes; it's not something that will be
an obstacle to transition.

Typical conversion looks so:
-static int minix_get_sb(struct file_system_type *fs_type,
-       int flags, const char *dev_name, void *data, struct vfsmount *mnt)
+static struct dentry *minix_mount(struct file_system_type *fs_type,
+       int flags, const char *dev_name, void *data)
 {
-       return get_sb_bdev(fs_type, flags, dev_name, data, minix_fill_super,
-                          mnt);
+       return mount_bdev(fs_type, flags, dev_name, data, minix_fill_super);
 }
 
 static struct file_system_type minix_fs_type = {
        .owner          = THIS_MODULE,
        .name           = "minix",
-       .get_sb         = minix_get_sb,
+       .mount          = minix_mount,

IOW, take foo_get_sb(), lose the vfsmount argument, call mount_bdev() instead
of get_sb_bdev() and you've got your replacement ->mount() instance.

The trickier conversions are for filesystems that may return a subtree
or mess with something unexpected in *mnt (like several nfs variants
do with mnt_devname, for very bad reasons).  But those won't be using
get_sb_bdev().  IOW, keeping that around until we are finished with
->mount() is not going to cause us any trouble.

Right now the only surviving in-tree ->get_sb() instances are in nfs
due to mnt_devname abuse.  Once these are gone, ->get_sb() will be,
and a good riddance - it was a bad API choice.  Mine, at that ;-/

Basically, we used to have ->read_super(), which filled a superblock
allocated by VFS code.  Filesystem type flags were used by VFS to
decide what to do before calling ->read_super() (basically "does
that want block device or is it anonymous").  It returned NULL or
the same struct super_block * it received to fill.

Then we switched to ->get_sb(), which asked for allocation itself and
did things like opening block device/grabbing anon device as well, so
that VFS code around mount() path could be nice and fs_type-agnostic.

That's when get_sb_bdev() et.al. had appeared - they did work common
for e.g. fs on block device, with callback provided by the caller to
do the rest of work.

We still were returning struct super_block *.  Note, however, that this
was *NOT* a superblock constructor - we were allowed to return a new
reference to existing superblock as well (and that was immediately used
for things like procfs, etc.)

About the same time we got vfsmount tree - each contained a reference
to superblock and root of dentry subtree on it.  mount --bind allowed
to create a new vfsmount with ->mnt_root pointing at the root of subtree
smaller than the entire dentry tree for ->mnt_sb, but normal mount
still gave us the whole thing.  Not a problem, we just set ->mnt_root
to ->mnt_sb->s_root when we mounted a filesystem.

Then NFS folks had come and said "we want mount() to give us a subtree
of existing superblock".  Now ->mnt_root could not be derived from
->mnt_sb.  Original proposal, IIRC, was to have root dentry returned
via struct dentry **, which was ugly.  I proposed to avoid the problems
with returning two values (superblock + dentry) by passing vfsmount we were
going to put them into anyway.

What I had missed at the time was that while ->mnt_root could not be
derived from ->mnt_sb, there was another property that still held:
mnt->mnt_root->d_sb == mnt->mnt_sb.  And that held for all vfsmounts,
full tree or not.  In other words, we didn't need to return the pair;
we just needed to turn the thing over and return *dentry*, deriving
superblock from it.  No need to pass half-filled vfsmount to fs code,
no need to call helper to set it, no need to do direct assignments
if we want a smaller subtree.

Alas, we went with "let's pass struct vfsmount * to be filled" variant.
Of course, the structure passed is the structure abused, so we ended up
growing very odd uses of those half-filled vfsmounts.  Fortunately,
most turned out to be easy to get rid of.  The only tricky one is what
nfs ended up doing, but there's a sane solution for that one (still
needs to be merged).

So right now we have
	* much saner interface available and used by almost everything in
tree.
	* ->get_sb() still there for the sake of NFS; out-of-tree users
are strongly[1] recommended to convert to ->mount().
	* ->get_sb() is going away very soon.
	* common boilerplates for use in ->get_sb() are left around until
then.

[1] well, as strong as I can feel about out-of-tree users, which is not
a damn lot.

Hi  AI Viro,

     I have saw this message, :)

     I think the nfs is using fs_type->get_sb, but it isn't using
get_sb_bdev(or get_sb_nodev) .
     So if the nfs cannot let
     struct dentry *(*mount) (struct file_system_type *, int,
               const char *, void *);
     to replace

     int (*get_sb) (struct file_system_type *, int,
               const char *, void *, struct vfsmount *);
     Now, this patch cannot influence nfs normal use.
     Because get_sb is not must use get_sb_bdev or get_sb_nodev to get mnt,
     All the filesystem are using mount_bdev mount_nodev now, but it
isn't called
     by get_sb,is called by *mount. Do you agreed with me?



Best Regards


LiuQi

Sigh...  Yes, and it is irrelevant.  There's simply no reason to remove
that stuff before the next merge window, when ->get_sb() is going to go
away _anyway_, along with those helpers.  I am not saying that it can't
be done right now; there's simply no point in doing so.  I don't particulary
care about hurting out-of-tree filesystems and if we had ->mnt_devname
series in this window I'd cheerfully ripped ->get_sb() out and let them
deal with it.  However, I don't see any reasons for removing the helpers
in this cycle.  What for?  To force the (trivial) switch to ->mount() in
out-of-tree block filesystems one cycle earlier?
