bdev_read_page: Start reading a page from a block device

NAME

bdev_read_page - Start reading a page from a block device

SYNOPSIS

int bdev_read_page(struct block_device bdev, sector_t sector, struct page page);

ARGUMENTS

bdev

The device to read the page from

sector

The offset on the device to read the page to (need not be aligned)

page

The page to read

DESCRIPTION

On entry, the page should be locked. It will be unlocked when the page has been read. If the block driver implements rw_page synchronously, that will be true on exit from this function, but it need not be.

Errors returned by this function are usually "soft", eg out of memory, or queue full; callers should try a different route to read this page rather than propagate an error back up the stack.

RETURN

negative errno if an error occurs, 0 if submission was successful.
