[PATCH v3 1/5] add metadata_incore ioctl in vfs

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Subject: add metadata_incore ioctl in vfs

Add an ioctl to dump filesystem's metadata in memory in vfs. Userspace collects
such info and uses it to do metadata readahead.
Filesystem can hook to super_operations.metadata_incore to get metadata in
specific approach. Next patch will give an example how to implement
.metadata_incore in btrfs.
