SubjectRe: [PATCH] f2fs: let f2fs also gc atomic file to avoid loop gc
From
Date
The atomic commit will trigger:
-f2fs_do_sync_file(filp, 0, LLONG_MAX, 0, true)
-file_write_and_wait_range(file, 0, LLONG_MAX)
-fsync_node_pages
-__write_node_page
-REQ_PREFLUSH | REQ_FUA

So data is flushed to non-volatile before last node write with
REQ_PREFLUSH | REQ_FUA,
we do not need to worry about the inconsistent problem. Right?
