[PATCH v3 16/21] fs: Add FS_XFLAG_ATOMICWRITES flag

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Add a flag indicating that a regular file is enabled for atomic writes.

This is a file attribute that mirrors an ondisk inode flag.  Actual support
for untorn file writes (for now) depends on both the iflag and the
underlying storage devices, which we can only really check at statx and
pwritev2() time.  This is the same story as FS_XFLAG_DAX, which signals to
the fs that we should try to enable the fsdax IO path on the file (instead
of the regular page cache), but applications have to query STAT_ATTR_DAX
to find out if they really got that IO path.
