ext4: Don't send extra barrier during fsync if there are no dirty pages.
P.S. If it wasn't clear, I'm still in favor of trying to coordinate barriers across the whole file system, since that is much more likely to help use cases that arise in real life. - Ted -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a mess... 6 Aug 2010 14:53
[PATCH 01/13] writeback: reduce calls to global_page_state in balance_dirty_pages()
Reducing the number of times balance_dirty_pages calls global_page_state reduces the cache references and so improves write performance on a variety of workloads. 'perf stats' of simple fio write tests shows the reduction in cache access. Where the test is fio 'write,mmap,600Mb,pre_read' on AMD AthlonX2 with 3G... 5 Aug 2010 13:33
[PATCH 09/13] writeback: the kupdate expire timestamp should be a moving target
Dynamically compute the dirty expire timestamp at queue_io() time. Also remove writeback_control.older_than_this which is no longer used. writeback_control.older_than_this used to be determined at entrance to the kupdate writeback work. This _static_ timestamp may go stale if the kupdate work runs on and on. The ... 5 Aug 2010 13:33

[PATCH 02/13] writeback: avoid unnecessary calculation of bdi dirty thresholds
Split get_dirty_limits() into global_dirty_limits()+bdi_dirty_limit(), so that the latter can be avoided when under global dirty background threshold (which is the normal state for most systems).
