Subject: [PATCH 0/3] fs: peel back the inode_lock some more
Date: Thursday 28th October 2010 11:42:38 UTC (over 6 years ago)
Hi Al, These as the first versions of the patches that remove the inode lock from the writeback lists, superblock inode lists and the inode hash table. I haven't polished them at all, but they appear to work ok so I thought I'd send them out for comments before I went to bed... With these patches the inode_lock pretty much disappears from my lock_stat profiles, with the writeback list lock being the most contended of the replacements on an 8-way machine. Cheers, Dave.
