[PATCH 4/8] ext2: intruduce ext2_mark_super_dirty

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


From: Artem Bityutskiy <artem.bityutskiy@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Introduce a helper function for marking the superblock as dirty. This is just a
preparation for further changes which will make ext2 fully manage its own
superblock and not rely on VFS services like periodic '->write_super()'
callback invocations.

Note: the final goal is to get rid of the 'sync_supers()' kernel thread which
wakes up every 5 seconds and even if there is nothing to do. Thus, we are
pushing superblock management from VFS down to file-systems.
