    SubjectRe: [PATCH] reiserfs v3 fixes and features

    Hello all,

    I've uploaded some new code to:

    Only reiserfs-group-alloc-9 has changed.

    preallocation now enforces minimum allocations too, which cuts down on
    fragmentation when applications send small writes.

    The mount options are slightly different. mount -o packing_groups
    changed to mount -o alloc=packing_groups. This makes the new options
    more consistent and easier to control via remount and such.

    More importantly, the default has changed too. Once you apply
    reiserfs-group-alloc-9, the default is:

    mount -o alloc=skip_busy:dirid_groups:packing_groups

    If you want the old default:

    mount -o alloc=skip_busy

    Both reiserfs-group-alloc-9 and reiserfs-search-reada-5 should be stable
    now, at least I haven't been able to trigger problems with them in -suse
    or -mm.
