Subject[PATCH v2 3/4] fat: mark superblock as dirty less often
Date
From: Artem Bityutskiy <artem.bityutskiy@linux.intel.com>

This patch is a preparation for further changes. It touches few functions
in fatent.c and prevents them from marking the superblock as dirty
unnecessarily often. Namely, instead of marking it as dirty in the internal
tight loops - do it only once at the end of the functions. And instead of
marking it as dirty while holding the FAT table lock, do it outside the lock.

The reason for this patch is that marking the superblock as dirty will soon
become a little bit heavier operation, so it is cleaner to do this only when it
is necessary.
