Commit Message

Florian Weimer June 27, 2019, 5:48 p.m.
The kernel is evolving this interface (e.g., removal of the
restriction on cross-device copies), and keeping up with that
is difficult.  Applications which need the function should
run kernels which support the system call instead of relying on
the imperfect glibc emulation.

2019-06-27  Florian Weimer  <fweimer@redhat.com>

	io: Remove the copy_file_range emulation.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/copy_file_range.c (copy_file_range): Do
	not define and call copy_file_range_compat.
	* io/Makefile (tests-static, tests-internal): Do not add
	tst-copy_file_range-compat.
	* io/copy_file_range-compat.c: Remove file.
	* io/copy_file_range.c (copy_file_range): Define as stub.
	* io/tst-copy_file_range-compat.c: Remove file.
	* io/tst-copy_file_range.c (xdevfile): Remove variable.
	(typical_sizes): Update comment.  Remove 16K sizes.
	(maximum_offset, maximum_offset_errno, maximum_offset_hard_limit):
	Remove variables.
	(find_maximum_offset, pipe_as_source, pipe_as_destination)
	(delayed_write_failure_beginning, delayed_write_failure_end)
	(cross_device_failure, enospc_failure_1, enospc_failure)
	(oappend_failure): Remove functions.
	(tests): Adjust test case list.
	(do_test): Remove file system search code.  Check for ENOSYS from
	copy_file_range.  Do not free xdevfile.
	* manual/llio.texi (Copying File Data): Document ENOSYS error from
	copy_file_range.  Do not document the EXDEV error, which future
	kernels may not report.  Update the wording to reflect that
	further errors are possible.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/alpha/kernel-features.h
	[__LINUX_KERNEL_VERSION < 0x040D00] (__ASSUME_COPY_FILE_RANGE): Do
	not undefine.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/arm/kernel-features.h
	[__LINUX_KERNEL_VERSION < 0x040700] (__ASSUME_COPY_FILE_RANGE):
	Likewise.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/kernel-features.h
	[__LINUX_KERNEL_VERSION >= 0x040500] (__ASSUME_COPY_FILE_RANGE):
	Remove definition.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/microblaze/kernel-features.h
	[__LINUX_KERNEL_VERSION < 0x040A00] (__ASSUME_COPY_FILE_RANGE): Do
	not undefine.
	* sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/sh/kernel-features.h
	[__LINUX_KERNEL_VERSION < 0x040800] (__ASSUME_COPY_FILE_RANGE):
	Likewise.

Maybe add the minimum kernel version that implements the syscall is Linux 4.5.
Do you plan to backport it to 2.27, 2.28, and/or 2.29?

Michael, we will need to update the man pages. 

LGTM with a nit below regarding a gratuitous extra line.

I'm going to add this sentence to the NEWS entry:

  Support for most architectures was added in version 4.5 of the
  mainline Linux kernel.

> Do you plan to backport it to 2.27, 2.28, and/or 2.29?


I had not, but I now think we should do it.  I will also try to excise
it from our downstream releases.

Thanks, fixed the nit, and finally tests are running.
