    Description

      Lustre and lnet support two parallel types of IO descriptors:

      • KVEC - a list of virtual-address plus SIZE
      • IOVEC - a list of PAGE + OFFSET + LEN

      This results in unnecessary duplication. IOVEC is suitable for all use-cases.

      This involves removing BULK_BUF_KVEC usage, then  LNET_MD_IOVEC, then ksock_tx.iov, then tx_iov - and probably other clean up.
