Subject: - ext4-uninitialized-block-groups.patch removed from -mm tree


The patch titled
     Ext4: Uninitialized Block Groups
has been removed from the -mm tree.  Its filename was
     ext4-uninitialized-block-groups.patch

This patch was dropped because it was merged into mainline or a subsystem tree

------------------------------------------------------
Subject: Ext4: Uninitialized Block Groups
From: Andreas Dilger <adilger@...sterfs.com>

In pass1 of e2fsck, every inode table in the fileystem is scanned and
checked, regardless of whether it is in use.  This is this the most time
consuming part of the filesystem check.  The unintialized block group
feature can greatly reduce e2fsck time by eliminating checking of
uninitialized inodes.

With this feature, there is a a high water mark of used inodes for each
block group.  Block and inode bitmaps can be uninitialized on disk via a
flag in the group descriptor to avoid reading or scanning them at e2fsck
time.  A checksum of each group descriptor is used to ensure that
corruption in the group descriptor's bit flags does not cause incorrect
operation.

The feature is enabled through a mkfs option

	mke2fs /dev/ -O uninit_groups

A patch adding support for uninitialized block groups to e2fsprogs tools has
been posted to the linux-ext4 mailing list.

The patches have been stress tested with fsstress and fsx.  In performance
tests testing e2fsck time, we have seen that e2fsck time on ext3 grows
linearly with the total number of inodes in the filesytem.  In ext4 with
the uninitialized block groups feature, the e2fsck time is constant, based
solely on the number of used inodes rather than the total inode count. 
Since typical ext4 filesystems only use 1-10% of their inodes, this feature
can greatly reduce e2fsck time for users.  With performance improvement of
2-20 times, depending on how full the filesystem is.

The attached graph shows the major improvements in e2fsck times in filesystems
with a large total inode count, but few inodes in use.

In each group descriptor if we have

EXT4_BG_INODE_UNINIT set in bg_flags:
        Inode table is not initialized/used in this group. So we can skip
        the consistency check during fsck.
EXT4_BG_BLOCK_UNINIT set in bg_flags:
        No block in the group is used. So we can skip the block bitmap
        verification for this group.

We also add two new fields to group descriptor as a part of
uninitialized group patch.

        __le16  bg_itable_unused;       /* Unused inodes count */
        __le16  bg_checksum;            /* crc16(sb_uuid+group+desc) */

bg_itable_unused:

If we have EXT4_BG_INODE_UNINIT not set in bg_flags
then bg_itable_unused will give the offset within
the inode table till the inodes are used. This can be
used by fsck to skip list of inodes that are marked unused.

bg_checksum:
Now that we depend on bg_flags and bg_itable_unused to determine
the block and inode usage, we need to make sure group descriptor
is not corrupt. We add checksum to group descriptor to
detect corruption. If the descriptor is found to be corrupt, we
mark all the blocks and inodes in the group used.
