Subject: [PATCH RFC] ext3 data=guarded v3
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Wednesday 15th April 2009 17:22:36 UTC (over 7 years ago)
Hello everyone,

Here is another version of the data=guarded work for ext3.  The main
difference between this code and yesterday's is the guarded writepage
function now sends any newly allocated block through the old data=ordered
code.

This is important because at the time we're walking the buffers, the page
may be unlocked, so we can't trust anything inside the page.  In general,
any allocation done by writepage is to fill a hole, so the old data=ordered
is what we want anyway.

This passed a longer stress test and generally seems to be working.  I
don't think anyone would recommend it as a default for 2.6.30, but it
may be a good idea to have a review party and decide if it is safe enough
to include so people can experiment with it.

Overall diffstat of the series:
