Subject[PATCH 0/2] fs/ext4: increase parallelism in updating ext4 orphan list
Date
Instead of allowing only a single atomic update (both in memory and on disk
orphan lists) of an ext4's orphan list via the s_orphan_lock mutex, this patch
allows multiple updates of the orphan list, while still maintaing the
integrity of both the in memory and on disk orphan lists of each update.

This is accomplished by using a per inode mutex to serialize the oprhan
list update of a single inode, and a mutex and a spinlock to serailize
the on disk and in memory orphan list respectively.

Here are some of the becnhmark results with the changes.

On a 90 core machine:

Here are the performance improvements in some of the aim7 workloads,

---------------------------
| | % increase |
---------------------------
| alltests | 9.56 |
---------------------------
| custom | 12.20 |
---------------------------
| fserver | 15.99 |
---------------------------
| new_dbase | 1.73 |
---------------------------
| new_fserver | 17.56 |
---------------------------
| shared | 6.24 |
---------------------------
For Swingbench dss workload,
