Subject: [PATCH v4 0/4]: block layer runtime pm
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Thursday 5th July 2012 07:26:35 UTC (over 4 years ago)
In August 2010, Jens and Alan discussed about "Runtime PM and the block
layer". http://marc.info/?t=128259108400001&r=1&w=2

Here are the v4 patches to implement the ideas discussed.
Welcome to give it a try.

git pull git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mlin/linux.git
block_pm

The test steps, for example

# ls -l /sys/block/sda
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/ata1/host0/target0:0:0/0:0:0:0/block/sda

# echo auto > /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/ata1/power/control
# echo auto >
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/ata1/host0/target0:0:0/0:0:0:0/power/control
# echo 10000 >
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/ata1/host0/target0:0:0/0:0:0:0/power/autosuspend_delay_ms

Then you'll see sda is suspended after 10secs idle.

# cat
/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1f.2/ata1/host0/target0:0:0/0:0:0:0/power/runtime_status
suspended

And if you do some IO, it will resume immediately.

v4:
- add CONFIG_PM_RUNTIME check
- update queue runtime pm status after system resume
- use pm_runtime_autosuspend instead of pm_request_autosuspend in
scsi_runtime_idle
- always count PM request

v3:
- remove block layer suspend/resume callbacks
- add block layer runtime pm helper functions

v2:
- remove queue idle timer, use runtime pm core's auto suspend

Lin Ming (4):
      block: add a flag to identify PM request
      block: add runtime pm helpers
      block: implement runtime pm strategy
      [SCSI] sd: change to auto suspend mode
