Subject: [PATCH 0/17] [LogFS] New flash filesystem
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Friday 20th November 2009 19:37:10 UTC (over 6 years ago)
Logfs has been around a couple of times.  Linus last word was "go and
don't come back until all format changes are done".  Or something
along those lines at least.

Format changes are done.  And I don't even intend to break git-bisect
for anyone crazy enough to use logfs for /.  But then again, logfs
doesn't have the hype of btrfs, nor does it deserve it.

Most controversial bit (for me, at least) is the btree code.  It is
generic enough to be used by others as well, but last time I checked,
rbtree performed better.  So unless someone (me?) spends some time to
see what's going on, a short-term option would be to move it all under
fs/logfs/, making it unavailable for others and remove it completely
unless good arguments are found in favor.

Patch 18 is a bonus for anyone lucky enough to have a decent device.
For those not too familiar with mtd - all mtd operations are
synchronous.  Which makes the interface horribly slow on devices that
support asynchronous operations, queueing or even parallel operations
on multiple chips.  I have a prototype device that shows promise,
along with the usual problems of prototypes.  So together with the
paper-thin infrastructure patch [1] and a decent device, that patch
allows logfs to make several thousand IO/s.

Mails are purely for review and comments.  If this is deemed
merge-ready, please the git tree at
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/joern/logfs.git
instead.
