total size in bytes
points to the start sector of the partition structure of the device
bio vector count which represents number of array element (page, offset, length) which makes up this I/O request
operations and flags
points to the device object which contains the partition (when bio structure represents a partition)
i-node number of the mapped file
binary trace for read/write request
beginning sector for the entire bio
name of the probe point
request queue on which this bio was queued.
target block device
offset into the bio vector array phys_segments - number of segments in this bio after physical address coalescing is performed.
number of bytes transferred
block device name
see below BIO_UPTODATE 0 ok after I/O completion BIO_RW_BLOCK 1 RW_AHEAD set, and read/write would block BIO_EOF 2 out-out-bounds error BIO_SEG_VALID 3 nr_hw_seg valid BIO_CLONED 4 doesn't own data BIO_BOUNCED 5 bio is a bounce bio BIO_USER_MAPPED 6 contains user pages BIO_EOPNOTSUPP 7 not supported
The process signals the transfer is done.
