      ext3: Avoid starting a transaction in writepage when not necessary · 9e80d407
      Jan Kara authored
      We don't have to start a transaction in writepage() when all the blocks
      are a properly allocated. Even in ordered mode either the data has been
      written via write() and they are thus already added to transaction's list
      or the data was written via mmap and then it's random in which transaction
      they get written anyway.
      This should help VM to pageout dirty memory without blocking on transaction
