parentf2fs: avoid to ra unneeded blocks in recover flow (diff)
Merge tag 'for-f2fs-3.19' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jaegeuk/f2fs
Pull f2fs updates from Jaegeuk Kim: "This patch-set includes lots of bug fixes based on clean-ups and refactored codes. And inline_dir was introduced and two minor mount options were added. Details from signed tag: This series includes the following enhancement with refactored flows. - fix inmemory page operations - fix wrong inline_data & inline_dir logics - enhance memory and IO control under memory pressure - consider preemption on radix_tree operation - fix memory leaks and deadlocks But also, there are a couple of new features: - support inline_dir to store dentries inside inode page - add -o fastboot to reduce booting time - implement -o dirsync And a lot of clean-ups and minor bug fixes as well" * tag 'for-f2fs-3.19' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jaegeuk/f2fs: (88 commits) f2fs: avoid to ra unneeded blocks in recover flow f2fs: introduce is_valid_blkaddr to cleanup codes in ra_meta_pages f2fs: fix to enable readahead for SSA/CP blocks f2fs: use atomic for counting inode with inline_{dir,inode} flag f2fs: cleanup path to need cp at fsync f2fs: check if inode state is dirty at fsync f2fs: count the number of inmemory pages f2fs: release inmemory pages when the file was closed f2fs: set page private for inmemory pages for truncation f2fs: count inline_xx in do_read_inode f2fs: do retry operations with cond_resched f2fs: call radix_tree_preload before radix_tree_insert f2fs: use rw_semaphore for nat entry lock f2fs: fix missing kmem_cache_free f2fs: more fast lookup for gc_inode list f2fs: cleanup redundant macro f2fs: fix to return correct error number in f2fs_write_begin f2fs: cleanup if-statement of phase in gc_data_segment f2fs: fix to recover converted inline_data f2fs: make clean the page before writing ...
