    iov_iter: Separate type from direction and use accessor functions · aa563d7b
    David Howells authored
    In the iov_iter struct, separate the iterator type from the iterator
    direction and use accessor functions to access them in most places.
    
    Convert a bunch of places to use switch-statements to access them rather
    then chains of bitwise-AND statements.  This makes it easier to add further
    iterator types.  Also, this can be more efficient as to implement a switch
    of small contiguous integers, the compiler can use ~50% fewer compare
    instructions than it has to use bitwise-and instructions.
    
    Further, cease passing the iterator type into the iterator setup function.
    The iterator function can set that itself.  Only the direction is required.
