Subject[UPDATE] Directory index for ext2
Date
Changes:

- Freshen to 2.4.5
- EXT2_FEATURE_COMPAT_DIR_INDEX flag finalized
- Break up ext2_add_entry for aesthetic reasons (Al Viro)
- Handle more than 64K directories per directory (Andreas Dilger)
- Bug fix: new inode no longer inherits index flag (Andreas Dilger)
- Bug fix: correct handling of error on index create (Al Viro)

To-Do:

- More factoring of ext2_add_entry
- Fall back to linear search in case of corrupted index
- Finalize hash function

The patch is available at:

http://nl.linux.org/~phillips/htree/dx.pcache-2.4.5

It requires Al Viro's directory-in-pcache patch:

ftp://ftp.math.psu.edu/pub/viro/ext2-dir-patch-S5.gz

To apply:

cd mysource/linux
zcat ext2-dir-patch-S5.gz | patch -p1
cat dx.pcache-2.4.5 | patch -p0
To create an indexed directory:

mount /dev/hdxxx /test -o index
mkdir /test/foo

No known bugs, please test, thanks in advance.
