Pull STATX_DIOALIGN support from Eric Biggers: "Make statx() support reporting direct I/O (DIO) alignment information. This provides a generic interface for userspace programs to determine whether a file supports DIO, and if so with what alignment restrictions. Specifically, STATX_DIOALIGN works on block devices, and on regular files when their containing filesystem has implemented support. An interface like this has been requested for years, since the conditions for when DIO is supported in Linux have gotten increasingly complex over time. Today, DIO support and alignment requirements can be affected by various filesystem features such as multi-device support, data journalling, inline data, encryption, verity, compression, checkpoint disabling, log-structured mode, etc. Further complicating things, Linux v6.0 relaxed the traditional rule of DIO needing to be aligned to the block device's logical block size; now user buffers (but not file offsets) only need to be aligned to the DMA alignment. The approach of uplifting the XFS specific ioctl XFS_IOC_DIOINFO was discarded in favor of creating a clean new interface with statx(). For more information, see the individual commits and the man page update[1]" Link: [1] * tag 'statx-dioalign-for-linus' of git:// xfs: support STATX_DIOALIGN f2fs: support STATX_DIOALIGN f2fs: simplify f2fs_force_buffered_io() f2fs: move f2fs_force_buffered_io() into file.c ext4: support STATX_DIOALIGN fscrypt: change fscrypt_dio_supported() to prepare for STATX_DIOALIGN vfs: support STATX_DIOALIGN on block devices statx: add direct I/O alignment information
