    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.
