nilfs2: add routines to redirect access to buffers of DAT file
During garbage collection (GC), DAT file, which converts virtual block number to real block number, may return disk block number that is not yet written to the device. To avoid access to unwritten blocks, the current implementation stores changes to the caches of GCDAT during GC and atomically commit the changes into the DAT file after they are written to the device. This patch, instead, adds a function that makes a copy of specified buffer and stores it in nilfs_shadow_map, and a function to get the backup copy as needed (nilfs_mdt_freeze_buffer and nilfs_mdt_get_frozen_buffer respectively). Before DAT changes block number in an entry block, it makes a copy and redirect access to the buffer so that address conversion function (i.e. nilfs_dat_translate) refers to the old address saved in the copy. This patch gives requisites for such redirection. Signed-off-by: Ryusuke Konishi <konishi.ryusuke@lab.ntt.co.jp>
