Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 20/45] dm space maps: don't reset space map allocation cursor when committing
Date
From: Joe Thornber <ejt@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 5faafc77f7de69147d1e818026b9a0cbf036a7b2 ]

Current commit code resets the place where the search for free blocks
will begin back to the start of the metadata device. There are a couple
of repercussions to this:

- The first allocation after the commit is likely to take longer than
normal as it searches for a free block in an area that is likely to
have very few free blocks (if any).

- Any free blocks it finds will have been recently freed. Reusing them
means we have fewer old copies of the metadata to aid recovery from
hardware error.

Fix these issues by leaving the cursor alone, only resetting when the
search hits the end of the metadata device.
