    md/raid5: activate raid6 rmw feature · 584acdd4
    Markus Stockhausen authored
    Glue it altogehter. The raid6 rmw path should work the same as the
    already existing raid5 logic. So emulate the prexor handling/flags
    and split functions as needed.
    1) Enable xor_syndrome() in the async layer.
    2) Split ops_run_prexor() into RAID4/5 and RAID6 logic. Xor the syndrome
    at the start of a rmw run as we did it before for the single parity.
    3) Take care of rmw run in ops_run_reconstruct6(). Again process only
    the changed pages to get syndrome back into sync.
    4) Enhance set_syndrome_sources() to fill NULL pages if we are in a rmw
    run. The lower layers will calculate start & end pages from that and
    call the xor_syndrome() correspondingly.
    5) Adapt the several places where we ignored Q handling up to now.
