SubjectRe: [RFC 3/8] nvmet: Use p2pmem in nvme target
From
Date
Hey Logan,

> enable p2p memory use. When enabled, the port will only then use the
> p2p memory if a p2p memory device can be found which is behind the

What should we do if we have more than a single device that satisfies
this? I'd say that it would be better to have the user ask for a
specific device and fail it if it doesn't meet the above conditions...

That's good :)

Even if it was available, it would be hard to make real use of this
given that we wouldn't know how to pre-post recv buffers (for in-capsule
data). But let's leave this out of the scope entirely...

Why do you need this? you have a reference to the
queue itself.

Not sure its a good practice to rely on rsp->p2pmem not being NULL...
Would be nice if the allocation routines can hide it from us...

What does this pair with? p2pmem_find_compat()?

This code has no business in nvmet-rdma. Why not keep nr_ns in
nvmet_subsys in the first place?

This is a problem. namespaces can be added at any point in time. No one
guarantee that dma_devs are all the namepaces we'll ever see.

Why is all this done for each queue? looks completely redundant to me.

You seemed to skip the in-capsule buffers for p2pmem (inline_page), I'm
curious why?
