[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/2] NBD protocol extensions: WRITE_ZEROES and GET_L

From: Denis V. Lunev
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/2] NBD protocol extensions: WRITE_ZEROES and GET_LBA_STATUS
Date: Wed, 23 Mar 2016 17:16:00 +0300

This patch set adds two new experimental extensions to the NBD protocol:

- WRITE_ZEROES, which describes a command for efficient zeroing of block
  device (or a part of it) without unneeded data transfer;
- GET_LBA_STATUS, which describes a command for quering block allocation
  state and block dirtiness status.

These commands provides minimal set of operations with block device sparness
and are very useful for mirroring and backing up of QEMU block device.
