The goal of the CLIO Simplification Implementation contract is the implementation in the Lustre source code of the CLIO Simplification Design that resulted from Project 2 of Contract SFS-DEV-003.

For the contract statement of work, see SFS-DEV-004_SOW.pdf

ioctl calls implementation STARTED

LU-5823 Replace some obsolete obd operations with CLIO ioctl interface 6 patches of 6? in review:

  • 12452 LU-5823 clio: add cl_object_ioctl() interface
  • 12494 LU-5823 clio: add CL_IOC_FIND_CBDATA cl_object_ioctl ops
  • 12535 LU-5823 clio: add CL_IOC_FIEMAP cl_object_ioctl ops
  • 12638 LU-5823 clio: add CL_IOC_DATA_VERSION and CL_IOC_GETATTR ops
  • 12748 LU-5823 clio: get rid of ll_glimpse_ioctl()
  • 12639 LU-5823 clio: get rid of lov_stripe_md reference in setting file stripe info

Remove lov_stripe_md (LSM) direct access beyond LOV layer STARTED

LU-5814 encapsulate lov_stripe_md (LSM) to LOV layer

5 of 20? patches landed.

  • 12442 LU-5814 lov: remove LL_IOC_RECREATE_{FID,OBJ}
  • 12446 LU-5814 echo: remove userspace LSM handling
  • 12445 LU-5814 lov: remove unused {get,set}_info handlers
  • 12447 LU-5418 echo: replace lov_stripe_md with lov_oinfo
  • 12618 LU-5814 llite: remove ll_objects_destroy()

1 of 20? patches in review:

  • 12581 LU-5814 lov: flatten struct lov_stripe_md]

Additional tasks:

  • Attempt to remove lli_has_smd.
  • Attempt to remove struct lustre_md:lsm: lustre_md can hold a pointer to lmm that LOV converts to LSM.
  • Attempt to remove struct obd_info:oi_md.

Remove non-linux interfaces STARTED

Two parts

Remove some cfs_ prefixed functions. STARTED

3 of 5? patches landed

  • NON-INTEL: 9902 LU-3963 libcfs: remove the last of cfs_atomic
  • NON-INTEL: 6956 LU-1346 libcfs: cleanup libcfs primitive (linux-prim.h)
  • NON-INTEL: 11797 LU-3963 libcfs: remove last of cfs list wrappers

2 of 2? patches pending

  • complete removal of cfs_get_blocked_sigs()
  • remove cfs_strncasecmp


  • cfs_snprintf() does have uses, not equivilent to snprintf(), will remain.
  • cfs_hlist* are needed for Linux kernel compatibility and will remain.

Remove ccc_ layer STARTED


1 of 20? patches started

  • 12592 LU-5971 llite: merge lclient.h into llite/vvp_internal.h

Cleanup obsolete OBD methods

0 of 20? patches started.

Tasks include

  • Replace the use of obd_setattr_async() in the handler for FSFILT_IOC_SETFLAGS.
  • Remove lov_setattr_async.
  • Remove lov_packmd and lov_unpackmd.
  • Remove dead or unused lsm parameters from several functions (o_get_info, mgc_enqueue, osc_brw_prep_request,...).
  • Convert ll_getxattr to use ll_file_getstripe().

NOTE: o_create, o_destroy are still in use by the echo code. Their LSM parameters have been removed.

Change requests

004-001 CLIO ioctl's should be functions

CHANGE REQUEST: 004-001 CLIO ioctl's should be functions.

BACKGROUND: Ioctl calls were included in the CLIO Simplification design to replace some obsolete ODB operations. Alternatively, individual functions can replace the ODB operations instead.

CHANGE: Do not implement ioctl calls. Implement functions.


  • Ensure none of the current patches are land.
  • Update the design document with the new design.
  • Update the ticket LU-5823 with new activity.
  • Execute work to complete LU-5823.
