      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
      commits.

      writeback: double the dirty thresholds · 1b5e62b4
      Wu Fengguang authored
      Enlarge default dirty ratios from 5/10 to 10/20.  This fixes [Bug
      #12809] iozone regression with 2.6.29-rc6.
      
      The iozone benchmarks are performed on a 1200M file, with 8GB ram.
      
        iozone -i 0 -i 1 -i 2 -i 3 -i 4 -r 4k -s 64k -s 512m -s 1200m -b tmp.xls
        iozone -B -r 4k -s 64k -s 512m -s 1200m -b tmp.xls
      
      The performance regression is triggered by commit 1cf6e7d8
      
      (mm: task
      dirty accounting fix), which makes more correct/thorough dirty
      accounting.
      
      The default 5/10 dirty ratios were picked (a) with the old dirty logic
      and (b) largely at random and (c) designed to be aggressive.  In
      particular, that (a) means that having fixed some of the dirty
      accounting, maybe the real bug is now that it was always too aggressive,
      just hidden by an accounting issue.
      
      The enlarged 10/20 dirty ratios are just about enough to fix the regression.
      
      [ We will have to look at how this affects the old fsync() latency issue,
        but that probably will need independent work.  - Linus ]

      Make relatime default · 0a1c01c9
      Matthew Garrett authored
      
      
      Change the default behaviour of the kernel to use relatime for all
      filesystems. This can be overridden with the "strictatime" mount
      option.

      Add a strictatime mount option · d0adde57
      Matthew Garrett authored
      
      
      Add support for explicitly requesting full atime updates. This makes it
      possible for kernels to default to relatime but still allow userspace to
      override it.

      Allow relatime to update atime once a day · 11ff6f05
      Matthew Garrett authored
      
      
      Allow atime to be updated once per day even with relatime. This lets
      utilities like tmpreaper (which delete files based on last access time)
      continue working, making relatime a plausible default for distributions.
