      Btrfs: try to cleanup delayed refs while freeing extents · 1887be66
      Chris Mason authored
      
      
      When extents are freed, it is likely that we've removed the last
      delayed reference update for the extent.  This checks the delayed
      ref tree when things are freed, and if no ref updates area left it
      immediately processes the delayed ref.

      Btrfs: reduce stack usage in some crucial tree balancing functions · 44871b1b
      Chris Mason authored
      
      
      Many of the tree balancing functions follow the same pattern.
      
      1) cow a block
      2) do something to the result
      
      This commit breaks them up into two functions so the variables and
      code required for part two don't suck down stack during part one.

      Btrfs: do extent allocation and reference count updates in the background · 56bec294
      Chris Mason authored
      
      
      The extent allocation tree maintains a reference count and full
      back reference information for every extent allocated in the
      filesystem.  For subvolume and snapshot trees, every time
      a block goes through COW, the new copy of the block adds a reference
      on every block it points to.
      
      If a btree node points to 150 leaves, then the COW code needs to go
      and add backrefs on 150 different extents, which might be spread all
      over the extent allocation tree.
      
      These updates currently happen during btrfs_cow_block, and most COWs
      happen during btrfs_search_slot.  btrfs_search_slot has locks held
      on both the parent and the node we are COWing, and so we really want
      to avoid IO during the COW if we can.
      
      This commit adds an rbtree of pending reference count updates and extent
      allocations.  The tree is ordered by byte number of the extent and byte number
      of the parent for the back reference.  The tree allows us to:
      
      1) Modify back references in something close to disk order, reducing seeks
      2) Significantly reduce the number of modifications made as block pointers
      are balanced around
      3) Do all of the extent insertion and back reference modifications outside
      of the performance critical btrfs_search_slot code.
      
      #3 has the added benefit of greatly reducing the btrfs stack footprint.
      The extent allocation tree modifications are done without the deep
      (and somewhat recursive) call chains used in the past.
      
      These delayed back reference updates must be done before the transaction
      commits, and so the rbtree is tied to the transaction.  Throttling is
      implemented to help keep the queue of backrefs at a reasonable size.
      
      Since there was a similar mechanism in place for the extent tree
      extents, that is removed and replaced by the delayed reference tree.

      Btrfs: don't preallocate metadata blocks during btrfs_search_slot · 9fa8cfe7
      Chris Mason authored
      
      
      In order to avoid doing expensive extent management with tree locks held,
      btrfs_search_slot will preallocate tree blocks for use by COW without
      any tree locks held.
      
      A later commit moves all of the extent allocation work for COW into
      a delayed update mechanism, and this preallocation will no longer be
      required.
