BLK_ADD_REQUEST_PAYL(9) Block Devices BLK_ADD_REQUEST_PAYL(9)
NAME blk_add_request_payload - add a payload to a request
SYNOPSIS void blk_add_request_payload(struct request * rq, struct page * page, unsigned int len);
ARGUMENTS rq request to update
page page backing the payload
len length of the payload.
DESCRIPTION This allows to later add a payload to an already submitted request by a block driver. The driver needs to take care of freeing the payload itself.
Note that this is a quite horrible hack and nothing but handling of discard requests should ever use it.
