      [PATCH] shmem: restore superblock info · 0edd73b3
      Hugh Dickins authored
      
      
      To improve shmem scalability, we allowed tmpfs instances which don't need
      their blocks or inodes limited not to count them, and not to allocate any
      sbinfo.  Which was okay when the only use for the sbinfo was accounting
      blocks and inodes; but since then a couple of unrelated projects extending
      tmpfs want to store other data in the sbinfo.  Whether either extension
      reaches mainline is beside the point: I'm guilty of a bad design decision,
      and should restore sbinfo to make any such future extensions easier.
      
      So, once again allocate a shmem_sb_info for every shmem/tmpfs instance, and
      now let max_blocks 0 indicate unlimited blocks, and max_inodes 0 unlimited
      inodes.  Brent Casavant verified (many months ago) that this does not
      perceptibly impact the scalability (since the unlimited sbinfo cacheline is
      repeatedly accessed but only once dirtied).
      
      And merge shmem_set_size into its sole caller shmem_remount_fs.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
