Subject[PATCH 0/7] kill-the-bkl/reiserfs performances updates
Date
Hi Al, everyone,

This patchset is the result of some lock tracing and analysis.

After doing a dbench test on SMP (2 CPUS) with 100 procs during
about 300 secs, I get the following throughput:

With the bkl:
40 MB/s
With the write lock before this patchset:
31 MB/s
With the write lock after this patchset:
36 MB/s

There is still some work to do but it's a good progress.
It seems to depend on the remaining disk space, sometimes I reach
almost the same performances, sometimes it's lower.

For those who want to test it against -rc4, you can pull on the tree
described below, it's a migration of the reiserfs work that was done
in Ingo's tip:core/kill-the-bkl + this patchset.

Thanks,
Frederic.
