|Subject:||XFS status update for June 2012|
|Date:||Tue, 24 Jul 2012 09:40:59 -0400|
June has been a pretty slow month for XFS in Linus tree, as June saw the stabilization of the Linux 3.5 and thus only a handful of important XFS fixes. Development of the tree destined for the next merge window has been a bit more busy with the addition of discontinuous buffers that replace the dabuf layer which has performance issues and isn't easy to deal with in the upcoming metadata checksumming as well as a few smaller cleanups. The list saw various other patches not applied yet, most notable a refactoring and speedup of the inode allocator, and a heavily discussed rewrite of the mount option parsing. On the user space side a small number of fixes to the handling of fragmented directories were applied to xfs_repair, and xfstests saw a fix for handling different versions of xfsdump.
