Subject: [RFC PATCH v7 00/13] Online(inband) data deduplication
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.file-systems.btrfs
Date: Monday 14th October 2013 04:59:42 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Data deduplication is a specialized data compression technique for
eliminating
duplicate copies of repeating data.[1]

This patch set is also related to "Content based storage" in project
ideas[2].

PATCH 1 is a hang fix with deduplication on, but it's also useful without
dedup in practice use.

PATCH 2 and 3 are targetting delayed refs' scalability problems, which are
uncovered by the dedup feature.

PATCH 4 is a speed-up improvement, which is about dedup and quota.

PATCH 5-8 is the preparation for dedup implementation.

PATCH 9 shows how we implement dedup feature.

PATCH 10 fixes a backref walking bug with dedup.

PATCH 11 fixes a free space bug of dedup extents on error handling.

PATCH 12 fixes a race bug on dedup writes.

PATCH 13 adds the ioctl to control dedup feature.

And there is also a btrfs-progs patch(PATCH 14) which involves all details
of
how to control dedup feature.

I've tested this with xfstests by adding a inline dedup 'enable & on' in
xfstests'
mount and scratch_mount.

TODO:
* a bit-to-bit comparison callback.

All comments are welcome!

v7:
- rebase onto the lastest btrfs
- break a big patch into smaller ones to make reviewers happy.
- kill mount options of dedup and use ioctl method instead.
- fix two crash due to the special dedup ref
