[PATCH 4.20 28/65] dm: do not allow readahead to limit IO size

4.20-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jaegeuk Kim <jaegeuk@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit c6d6e9b0f6b4201c77f2cea3964dd122697e3543 upstream.

Update DM to set the bdi's io_pages.  This fixes reads to be capped at
the device's max request size (even if user's read IO exceeds the
established readahead setting).

Fixes: 9491ae4a ("mm: don't cap request size based on read-ahead setting")
