[PATCH 00/12] target: TPG/NodeACL LUN table conversion to RCU hlist

Hi all,

This patch converts target-core from traditional fixed size arrays for
TPG LUN and NodeACL MappedLUNs tables to modern read-copy-update (RCU)
logic using hlist_head primitives.

This includes the changes necessary for performing se_dev_entry + se_lun
allocation + call_rcu() release within RCU updater path code, fast-path
conversion of transport_lookup_*_lun() to lock-less RCU reader using
existing percpu_ref, and a handful of fabric configfs and CDB emulation
related RCU reader changes.

It allows for an arbitrary number of entries per hlist_head, but for the
moment is still enforcing TRANSPORT_MAX_LUNS_PER_TPG following what
user-space expects. It also converts non-fast path RCU updater code to
use blocking struct mutex instead of spinlocks for both hlist_heads.

Note that sbp-target is broken atm due to the way it's using se_lun
directly, and will be fixed up soon.

Please review.
