Subject: [PATCH v8 0/7] xfs-docs: reorganize chapters, document rmap and reflink
Date: Thu, 25 Aug 2016 16:26:56 -0700	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi all,

This is the eighth revision of a patchset that adds to XFS kernel
support for mapping multiple file logical blocks to the same physical
block (reflink/deduplication), implements the beginnings of online
metadata scrubbing and preening, and implements reverse mapping for
the realtime device.  There shouldn't be any incompatible on-disk
format changes, pending a thorough review of the patches within.

The patches in this series fix various errors, bring the documentation
up to date as of kernel 4.6, and add entirely new chapters about the
reverse mapping and reference count btrees.  The new log redo items
are also documented.

If you're going to start using this mess, you probably ought to just
pull from my github trees for kernel[1], xfsprogs[2], xfstests[3],
xfs-docs[4], and man-pages[5].  The kernel patches in the git trees
should apply to 4.8-rc3; xfsprogs patches to for-next; and xfstest to

The patches have been xfstested with x64, ppc64, and armhf; all tests
in the clone and rmap groups pass.  AFAICT they don't cause any new
failures for the 'auto' group.

This is an extraordinary way to eat your data.  Enjoy! 
Comments and questions are, as always, welcome.
