Subject: [PATCH 9/9] btrfs: drop mmap_sem in mkwrite for btrfs
Date: Wed, 26 Sep 2018 17:08:56 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20180926210856.7895-10-josef@toxicpanda.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20180926210856.7895-1-josef@toxicpanda.com>

->page_mkwrite is extremely expensive in btrfs.  We have to reserve
space, which can take 6 lifetimes, and we could possibly have to wait on
writeback on the page, another several lifetimes.  To avoid this simply
drop the mmap_sem if we didn't have the cached page and do all of our
work and return the appropriate retry error.  If we have the cached page
we know we did all the right things to set this page up and we can just
carry on.
