Subject[PATCH 09/15] Make selection of 'readdir-plus' adapt to usage patterns.
Date
From: NeilBrown <neilb@suse.de>

While the use of READDIRPLUS is significantly more efficient than
READDIR followed by many GETATTR calls, it is still less efficient
than just READDIR if the attributes are not required.

We can get a hint as to whether the application requires attr information
by looking at whether any ->getattr calls are made between
->readdir calls.
If there are any, then getting the attributes seems to be worth while.

This patch tracks whether there have been recent getattr calls on
children of a directory and uses that information to selectively
disable READDIRPLUS on that directory.

The first 'readdir' call is always served using READDIRPLUS.
Subsequent calls only use READDIRPLUS if there was a getattr on a child
in the mean time.

The locking of ->d_parent access needs to be reviewed.
As the bit is simply a hint, it isn't critical that it is set
on the "correct" parent if a rename is happening, but it is
critical that the 'set' doesn't set a bit in something that
isn't even an inode any more.
