[PATCH] block: unmap (discard) blocks only if discard_zeros flag is true
Posted by luzhipeng 5 days, 18 hours ago
From: lu zhipeng <luzhipeng@cestc.cn>

we can unmap(discard) blocks for block devices of supporting discard zeros
or regular file.

This more or less restores the state before commit 34fa110e. The commit
message there explains that s->discard_zeroes is unreliable (in
particular, it is false on block devices on recent kernels even though
they may support zeroing by discard just fine).

We should instead remove s->discard_zeroes because it is currently
unused. I'll send a patch.
