Subject: [RFC PATCH v10 00/16] Online(inband) data deduplication
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.file-systems.btrfs
Date: Thursday 10th April 2014 03:48:30 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Hello,

This the 10th attempt for in-band data dedupe, based on Linux _3.14_
kernel.

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],
it introduces inband data deduplication for btrfs and dedup/dedupe is for
short.

* PATCH 1 is a speed-up improvement, which is about dedup and quota.

* PATCH 2-5 is the preparation work for dedup implementation.

* PATCH 6 shows how we implement dedup feature.

* PATCH 7 fixes a backref walking bug with dedup.

* PATCH 8 fixes a free space bug of dedup extents on error handling.

* PATCH 9 adds the ioctl to control dedup feature.

* PATCH 10 targets delayed refs' scalability problem of deleting refs,
which is 
  uncovered by the dedup feature.

* PATCH 11-16 fixes bugs of dedupe including race bug, deadlock, abnormal
  transaction abortion and crash.

* btrfs-progs patch(PATCH 17) offers all details about how to control the
  dedup feature on progs side.

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


***NOTE***
Known bugs:
* Mounting with options "flushoncommit" and enabling dedupe feature will
end up
  with _deadlock_.


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

All comments are welcome!

v10:
- fix a typo in the subject line.
- update struct 'btrfs_ioctl_dedup_args' in the kernel side to fix
  'Inappropriate ioctl for device'.

v9:
- fix a deadlock and a crash reported by users.
- fix the metadata ENOSPC problem with dedup again.

v8:
- fix the race crash of dedup ref again.
- fix the metadata ENOSPC problem with dedup.

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
