Subject: [f2fs-dev][PATCH V2 0/6] f2fs: Enable f2fs support inline data
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Sunday 10th November 2013 15:13:15 UTC (over 2 years ago)
From: Huajun Li 

f2fs inode is so large, so small files can be stored directly in the inode,
rather than just storing a single block address and storing the data
elsewhere.

This patch set makes files less than ~3.4K store directly in inode block.
a) space saving
   Test with kernel src(without repo data), it can save about 10% space
   with this patch set;
b) performance
   Test this patch set with iozone, there is no obvious performance
difference
   with the results of disabling this feature.


V2: - Update f2fs_reserve_block() according to comments on V1
    - Add function f2fs_may_inline() to check whether the file meet 
      inline requirements
    - Try to write inline data to normal data block before clearing it
      from inode block 
    - Change lock scope while converting inline data
    - Add inline_data description to f2fs documentation

Huajun Li (6):
  f2fs: Add flags and helpers to support inline data
  f2fs: Add a new mount option: inline_data
  f2fs: Add a new function: f2fs_reserve_block()
  f2fs: Key functions to handle inline data
  f2fs: Handle inline data operations
  f2fs: update f2fs Documentation
