Nice idea Sagi. Yes we have been starting to look at that. Though again we
would probably want to impose the "attached to the same PCIe switch" rule
which might be less common to satisfy in initiator systems.
Down the road I would also like to discuss the best way to use this P2P
framework to facilitate copies between NVMe namespaces (on both PCIe and
fabric attached namespaces) without having to expose the CMB up to user
space. Wasn't something like that done in the SCSI world at some point
Are you perhaps referring to the following patch series: "Copy Offload"
I will contact Martin off-list and in
case he wouldn't have the time myself to revive that patch series then I
will free up some time to work on this.
