[Qemu-devel] [PATCH for-2.5 v2 0/4] block: replace IOV_MAX with BlockLim

 * Default to IOV_MAX instead of INT_MAX [Peter Lieven]

This series depends on "[PATCH] block/mirror: limit qiov to IOV_MAX elements".

IOV_MAX has been hardcoded in several places since preadv()/pwritev()/etc
refuse to take more iovecs per call.  That's actually an implementation detail
of raw-posix and we shouldn't spread that across the codebase.

This series adds BlockLimits.max_iov (similar to BlockLimits.max_transfer_len
and other fields).  Current IOV_MAX users are converted to blk_get_max_iov().

By the way, the IOV_MAX vs BlockLimits.max_iov naming is slightly confusing but
follows the BlockLimits field naming convention.  Once IOV_MAX is banished no
one will be bothered by the reverse naming anymore.

Stefan Hajnoczi (4):
  block: add BlockLimits.max_iov field
  block-backend: add blk_get_max_iov()
  block: replace IOV_MAX with BlockLimits.max_iov
  block/mirror: replace IOV_MAX with blk_get_max_iov()
