Subject[PATCH 0/11] Per-bdi writeback flusher threads v9
Date
Hi,

Here's the 9th version of the writeback patches. Changes since v8:

- Fix a bdi_work on-stack allocation hang. I hope this fixes Ted's
issue.
- Get rid of the explicit wait queues, we can just use wake_up_process()
since it's just for that one task.
- Add separate "sync_supers" thread that makes sure that the dirty
super blocks get written. We cannot safely do this from bdi_forker_task(),
as that risks deadlocking on ->s_umount. Artem, I implemented this
by doing the wake ups from a timer so that it would be easier for you
to just deactivate the timer when there are no super blocks.

For ease of patching, I've put the full diff here:

http://kernel.dk/writeback-v9.patch

and also stored this in a writeback-v9 branch that will not change,
you can pull that into Linus tree from here:
