    Subject[PATCH 0/12] Per-bdi writeback flusher threads v7
    Date
    Hi,

    Here's the 7th version of the writeback patches. Changes since
    v5/v6:

    - Move the sync_supers() to the global bdi_forker_task() thread, so we
    don't writeback the supers from all the bdi kupdated() tasks.
    - Make bdi_start_writeback() and bdi_writeback_all() be sync when called
    with WB_SYNC_ALL only.
    - Shuffle some more things around to make a cleaner series. The sync vs
    async nature of bdi_writeback_all() and bdi_start_writeback() isn't
    consistent through the series, but otherwise things should be sane.

    I'd appreciate if Richard and Yanmin could re-run testing with this,
    just to make sure that things are sane. For ease of patching, I've
    put the full diff here:

    http://kernel.dk/writeback-v7.patch

    and also stored this in a writeback-v7 branch that will not change,
    you can pull that into Linus tree from here:

    git://git.kernel.dk/linux-2.6-block.git writeback-v7
