    Btrfs: implement memory reclaim for leaf reference cache · bcc63abb
    Yan authored
    The memory reclaiming issue happens when snapshot exists. In that
    case, some cache entries may not be used during old snapshot dropping,
    so they will remain in the cache until umount.
    The patch adds a field to struct btrfs_leaf_ref to record create time. Besides,
    the patch makes all dead roots of a given snapshot linked together in order of
    create time. After a old snapshot was completely dropped, we check the dead
    root list and remove all cache entries created before the oldest dead root in
    the list.
