Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mason/linux-btrfs
Pull large btrfs update from Chris Mason: "This pull request is very large, and the two main features in here have been under testing/devel for quite a while. We have subvolume quotas from the strato developers. This enables full tracking of how many blocks are allocated to each subvolume (and all snapshots) and you can set limits on a per-subvolume basis. You can also create quota groups and toss multiple subvolumes into a big group. It's everything you need to be a web hosting company and give each user their own subvolume. The userland side of the quotas is being refreshed, they'll send out details on where to grab it soon. Next is the kernel side of btrfs send/receive from Alexander Block. This leverages the same infrastructure as the quota code to figure out relationships between blocks and their owners. It can then compute the difference between two snapshots and sends the diffs in a neutral format into userland. The basic model: create a snapshot send that snapshot as the initial backup make changes create a second snapshot send the incremental as a backup delete the first snapshot (use the second snapshot for the next incremental) The receive portion is all in userland, and in the 'next' branch of my btrfs-progs repo. There's still some work to do in terms of optimizing the send side from kernel to userland. The really important part is figuring out how two snapshots are different, and this is where we are concentrating right now. The initial send of a dataset is a little slower than tar, but the incremental sends are dramatically faster than what rsync can do. On top of all of that, we have a nice queue of fixes, cleanups and optimizations." Fix up trivial modify/del conflict in fs/btrfs/ioctl.c Also fix up semantic conflict in fs/btrfs/send.c: the interface to dentry_open() changed in commit 765927b2d508 ("switch dentry_open() to struct path, make it grab references itself"), and since it now grabs whatever references it needs, we should no longer do the mntget() on the mnt (and we need to dput() the dentry reference we took). * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/mason/linux-btrfs: (65 commits) Btrfs: uninit variable fixes in send/receive Btrfs: introduce BTRFS_IOC_SEND for btrfs send/receive Btrfs: add btrfs_compare_trees function Btrfs: introduce subvol uuids and times Btrfs: make iref_to_path non static Btrfs: add a barrier before a waitqueue_active check Btrfs: call the ordered free operation without any locks held Btrfs: Check INCOMPAT flags on remount and add helper function Btrfs: add helper for tree enumeration btrfs: allow cross-subvolume file clone Btrfs: improve multi-thread buffer read Btrfs: make btrfs's allocation smoothly with preallocation Btrfs: lock the transition from dirty to writeback for an eb Btrfs: fix potential race in extent buffer freeing Btrfs: don't return true in releasepage unless we actually freed the eb Btrfs: suppress printk() if all device I/O stats are zero Btrfs: remove unwanted printk() for btrfs device I/O stats Btrfs: rewrite BTRFS_SETGET_FUNCS Btrfs: zero unused bytes in inode item Btrfs: kill free_space pointer from inode structure ...
