Hello, Here is the New Year patch bomb :-) Data deduplication is a specialized data compression technique for eliminating duplicate copies of repeating data. This patch set is also related to "Content based storage" in project ideas, it introduces inband data deduplication for btrfs and dedup/dedupe is for short. PATCH 1 is a hang fix with deduplication on, but it's also useful without dedup in practice use. PATCH 2 and 3 are targetting delayed refs' scalability problems, which are uncovered by the dedup feature. PATCH 4 is a speed-up improvement, which is about dedup and quota. PATCH 5-8 is the preparation work for dedup implementation. PATCH 9 shows how we implement dedup feature. PATCH 10 fixes a backref walking bug with dedup. PATCH 11 fixes a free space bug of dedup extents on error handling. PATCH 12 adds the ioctl to control dedup feature. PATCH 13 fixes the metadata ENOSPC problem with dedup which has been there WAY TOO LONG. PATCH 14 fixes a race bug on dedup writes. And there is also a btrfs-progs patch(PATCH 15) which offers all details about how to control the dedup feature. I've tested this with xfstests by adding a inline dedup 'enable & on' in xfstests' mount and scratch_mount. TODO: * a bit-to-bit comparison callback. All comments are welcome! : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_deduplication : https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Project_ideas#Con... v8: - fix the race crash of dedup ref again. - fix the metadata ENOSPC problem with dedup. v7: - rebase onto the lastest btrfs - break a big patch into smaller ones to make reviewers happy. - kill mount options of dedup and use ioctl method instead. - fix two crash due to the special dedup ref For former patch sets: v6: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.file-systems.btrfs/27512 v5: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.file-systems.btrfs/27257 v4: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.file-systems.btrfs/25751 v3: http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.file-systems.btrfs/2... v2: http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.file-systems.btrfs/2...
