ocfs2: Enable xattr set in index btree
Where the previous patches added the ability of list/get xattr in buckets for ocfs2, this patch enables ocfs2 to store large numbers of EAs. The original design doc is written by Mark Fasheh, and it can be found in http://oss.oracle.com/osswiki/OCFS2/DesignDocs/IndexedEATrees. I only had to make small modifications to it. First, because the bucket size is 4K, a new field named xh_free_start is added in ocfs2_xattr_header to indicate the next valid name/value offset in a bucket. It is used when we store new EA name/value. With this field, we can find the place more quickly and what's more, we don't need to sort the name/value every time to let the last entry indicate the next unused space. This makes the insert operation more efficient for blocksizes smaller than 4k. Because of the new xh_free_start, another field named as xh_name_value_len is also added in ocfs2_xattr_header. It records the total length of all the name/values in the bucket. We need this so that we can check it and defragment the bucket if there is not enough contiguous free space. An xattr insertion looks like this: 1. xattr_index_block_find: find the right bucket by the name_hash, say bucketA. 2. check whether there is enough space in bucketA. If yes, insert it directly and modify xh_free_start and xh_name_value_len accordingly. If not, check xh_name_value_len to see whether we can store this by defragment the bucket. If yes, defragment it and go on insertion. 3. If defragement doesn't work, check whether there is new empty bucket in the clusters within this extent record. If yes, init the new bucket and move all the buckets after bucketA one by one to the next bucket. Move half of the entries in bucketA to the next bucket and go on insertion. 4. If there is no new bucket, grow the extent tree. As for xattr deletion, we will delete an xattr bucket when all it's xattrs are removed and move all the buckets after it to the previous one. When all the xattr buckets in an extend record are freed, free this extend records from ocfs2_xattr_tree. Signed-off-by: Tao Ma <tao.ma@oracle.com> Signed-off-by: Mark Fasheh <mfasheh@suse.com>
