[PATCH v2] xfs: remove redundant batch variables for serialization

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


From: Jinliang Zheng <alexjlzheng@xxxxxxxxxxx>

Historically, when generic percpu counters were introduced in xfs for
free block counters by commit 0d485ada404b ("xfs: use generic percpu
counters for free block counter"), the counters used a custom batch
size. In xfs_mod_freecounter(), originally named xfs_mod_fdblocks(),
this patch attempted to serialize the program using a smaller batch size
as parameter to the addition function as the counter approaches 0.

Commit 8c1903d3081a ("xfs: inode and free block counters need to use
__percpu_counter_compare") pointed out the error in commit 0d485ada404b
("xfs: use generic percpu counters for free block counter") mentioned
above and said that "Because the counters use a custom batch size, the
comparison functions need to be aware of that batch size otherwise the
comparison does not work correctly". Then percpu_counter_compare() was
replaced with __percpu_counter_compare() with parameter

After commit 8c1903d3081a ("xfs: inode and free block counters need to
use __percpu_counter_compare"), the existence of the batch variable is
no longer necessary, so this patch is proposed to simplify the code by
removing it.
