Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] erofs: iomap support for uncompressed cases
Date: Sat, 31 Jul 2021 03:46:22 +0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Hi folks,

This patchset mainly adds EROFS iomap support for uncompressed cases
I've planed for the next merge window.

The first 2 patches mainly deal with 2 new cases:
1) Direct I/O is useful in certain scenarios for uncompressed files.
For example, double pagecache can be avoid by direct I/O when loop
device is used for uncompressed files containing upper layer
compressed filesystem.

2) DAX is quite useful for some container use cases in order to save
guest memory extremely by using the minimal lightweight EROFS image.
BTW, a bit more off this iomap topic, chunk-deduplicated regfile
support is almost available (blob data support) for multi-layer
container image use cases (aka. called RAFS v6, nydus [1] will support
RAFS v6 (EROFS-compatible format) in the future and form a unified
high-performance container image solution, which will be announced
formally independently), which is also a small independent update.

The last patch relies on the previous iomap core update in order to
convert tail-packing inline files into iomap, thus all uncompressed
cases are handled with iomap properly.

Comments are welcome. Thanks for your time on reading this!
