      [PATCH] Fix and add EXPORT_SYMBOL(filemap_write_and_wait) · 28fd1298
      OGAWA Hirofumi authored
      
      
      This patch add EXPORT_SYMBOL(filemap_write_and_wait) and use it.
      
      See mm/filemap.c:
      
      And changes the filemap_write_and_wait() and filemap_write_and_wait_range().
      
      Current filemap_write_and_wait() doesn't wait if filemap_fdatawrite()
      returns error.  However, even if filemap_fdatawrite() returned an
      error, it may have submitted the partially data pages to the device.
      (e.g. in the case of -ENOSPC)
      
      <quotation>
      Andrew Morton writes,
      
      If filemap_fdatawrite() returns an error, this might be due to some
      I/O problem: dead disk, unplugged cable, etc.  Given the generally
      crappy quality of the kernel's handling of such exceptions, there's a
      good chance that the filemap_fdatawait() will get stuck in D state
      forever.
      </quotation>
      
      So, this patch doesn't wait if filemap_fdatawrite() returns the -EIO.
      
      Trond, could you please review the nfs part?  Especially I'm not sure,
      nfs must use the "filemap_fdatawrite(inode->i_mapping) == 0", or not.

      JFS: make special inodes play nicely with page balancing · ac17b8b5
      Dave Kleikamp authored
      
      
      This patch fixes up a few problems with jfs's reserved inodes.
      
      1. There is no need for the jfs code setting the I_DIRTY bits in i_state.
         I am ashamed that the code ever did this, and surprised it hasn't been
         noticed until now.
      
      2. Make sure special inodes are on an inode hash list.  If the inodes are
         unhashed, __mark_inode_dirty will fail to put the inode on the
         superblock's dirty list, and the data will not be flushed under memory
         pressure.
      
      3. Force writing journal data to disk when metapage_writepage is unable to
         write a metadata page due to pending journal I/O.

      JFS: Code cleanup - getting rid of never-used debug code · b38a3ab3
      Dave Kleikamp authored
      
      
      I'm finally getting around to cleaning out debug code that I've never used.
      There has always been code ifdef'ed out by _JFS_DEBUG_DMAP, _JFS_DEBUG_IMAP,
      _JFS_DEBUG_DTREE, and _JFS_DEBUG_XTREE, which I have personally never used,
      and I doubt that anyone has since the design stage back in OS/2.  There is
      also a function, xtGather, that has never been used, and I don't know why it
      was ever there.

      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!
