Subject[PATCH 0/62] Ocfs2 updates for 2.6.26-rc1
The following series of patches comprises the bulk of our outstanding
changes for Ocfs2.

Aside from the usual set of cleanups and fixes that were inappropriate for
2.6.25, there are a few highlights:

The '/sys/o2cb' directory has been moved to '/sys/fs/o2cb'. The new location
meshes better with modern sysfs layout. A symbolic link has been placed in
the old location so as to not break old versions of ocfs2-tools. New
versions of ocfs2-tools know to look in /sys/fs/o2cb. When an appropriate
amount of time has passed (decided to be two years), we can remove the link.
This change required a small patch to sysfs (entirely external to Ocfs2)
which is included here with the appropriate 'Acked-by' lines.

Inode allocation in Ocfs2 has been modified to better handle an annoying
corner case. When a node's local inode allocator fills up, it attempts to
grow the allocator by adding an inode group. This might be impossible
though, if the main file system bitmap is too full or fragmented to provide
the required space. This used to be treated as an ENOSPC condition, but with
the addition of Tao's "inode stealing" patches, the allocation code will
attempt to allocate from other node's inode allocators before throwing an

Merging of unwritten extents has also undergone an incremental but
significant improvement - extents can now be merged between leaf nodes. This
ensures that the allocation btree stays as compact as possible, even if
previous write patterns had caused it to fragment. Thanks again goes to Tao
for this improvement.

Sunil has improved our ability to debug the Ocfs2 DLM by allowing us to
track DLM state via a set of debugfs files. It's now possible to get a
point-in-time view of master list entries, lock resource states and more.
Debugfs.ocfs2 has been patched to make this process even easier.

And finally, we have Joel's work to allow Ocfs2 to use userspace cluster
stacks. This series of patches is the last step in a multi-year process of
seperating the Ocfs2 file system code from the underlying cluster stack.
The file system is now cluster stack agnostic. Users can choose between
the "o2cb" stack which is comprised of the traditional Ocfs2 cluster
components (including fs/ocfs2/dlm, also referred to as "o2dlm") or the new
"user" cluster stack. The "user" cluster stack requires a userspace
component to communicate node membership information to the file system via
a misc device. In "user" cluster stack mode, Dave Teigland's dlm (fs/dlm) is
used as it already contains a cluster stack agnostic userspace API.

This all has several benefits. The most obvious is that we now get to share
code and maintenance cost with other cluster-related projects instead of
re-implementing cluster and dlm features in parallel. Additionally, Ocfs2
users can now run the cluster stack of their choice. For example, while we
anticipate that some users will want to stick with o2cb for it's simplicity
of setup and use, many will want access to some of the advanced features
(clustered volume management, hardware fencing, service failover, etc) that
are already provided by most userspace cluster stacks. These patches allow
for that sort of decision to be made.

Of course, all of this is 100% backwards compatible with old versions of
Ocfs2-tools. Users only need to download a new version of Ocfs2-tools if
they want to take advantage of the userspace cluster stack feature. An
ocfs2-tools tree with code to enable userspace cluster stacks can be found

Right now, the sole stack interface implemented in the toolchain is to Red
Hat's "cluster" project. In time, we anticipate that ocfs2-tools will grow
support for other cluster stacks, including linux-ha. Our thanks go to the
folks involved in the "cluster" project. Their help and advice was
instrumental to getting this together.

Finally, my apologies for the large e-mail. There's a lot of patches here
and I wanted to make sure any interested parties had a good idea of what
they represent.
