Subject: [PATCH 0/9] readahead stats/tracing, backwards prefetching and more (v4)

Andrew,

Will you include it into the -mm tree?

This introduces the per-cpu readahead stats, tracing, backwards
prefetching,
fixes context readahead for SSD random reads and does some other minor
changes.

Changes since v3:
- default to CONFIG_READAHEAD_STATS=n
- drop "block: limit default readahead size for small devices"
  (and expect some distro udev rules to do the job)
- use percpu_counter for the readahead stats

Changes since v2:
- use per-cpu counters for readahead stats
- make context readahead more conservative
- simplify readahead tracing format and use __print_symbolic()
- backwards prefetching and snap to EOF fixes and cleanups

Changes since v1:
- use bit fields: pattern, for_mmap, for_metadata, lseek
- comment the various readahead patterns
- drop boot options "readahead=" and "readahead_stats="
- add for_metadata
- add snapping to EOF

 [PATCH 1/9] readahead: make context readahead more conservative
 [PATCH 2/9] readahead: record readahead patterns
 [PATCH 3/9] readahead: tag mmap page fault call sites
 [PATCH 4/9] readahead: tag metadata call sites
 [PATCH 5/9] readahead: add vfs/readahead tracing event
 [PATCH 6/9] readahead: add /debug/readahead/stats
 [PATCH 7/9] readahead: basic support for backwards prefetching
 [PATCH 8/9] readahead: dont do start-of-file readahead after lseek()
 [PATCH 9/9] readahead: snap readahead request to EOF
