SubjectRe: [PATCH 1/2] f2fs: enable to gc page whose inode already atomic commit
From
Date
OK, now I got it, thanks for the explanation. Then the point is to avoid
set_page_dirty between file_write_and_wait_range and fsync_node_pages,
so we can lock before file_write_and_wait_range and unlock after
fsync_node_pages, and lock before set_page_dirty and unlock after
set_page_dirty. These patches and the locks can make sure the GCed data
pages are all committed to nand flash with their nodes.
