Subject[PATCH v5 7/7] fs/ext4,jbd2: add support for sending write-hint with journal
Date
For NAND based SSDs, mixing of data with different life-time reduces
efficiency of internal garbage-collection. During FS operations,
series of journal updates will follow/precede series of data/meta
updates, causing intermixing inside SSD. By passing a write-hint with
journal, its write can be isolated from other data/meta writes, leading
to endurance/performance benefit on SSD.
This patch introduces "j_writehint" member in JBD2 journal, using which
Ext4 specifies write-hint for journal.
