Have you managed to solve the problem of multi-mapped pages? I don't
think we can include this until we solve that problem. This is the
problem I faced when I was doing the btrfs dax support.
Suppose there is an extent shared with multiple files. You map data for
both files. Which inode should page->mapping->host (precisely
page->mapping) point to? As Dave pointed out, this needs to be fixed at
the mm level, and will not only benefit dax with CoW but other
areas such as overlayfs and possibly containers.
It is based on Goldwyn's patchsets: "v4 Btrfs dax support" and the latest
iomap. I borrowed some patches related and made a few fix to make it
basically works fine.
For dax framework:
1. adapt to the latest change in iomap (two iomaps).
1. distinguish dax write/zero from normal write/zero.
2. remap extents after COW.
3. add file contents comparison function based on dax framework.
4. use xfs_break_layouts() instead of break_layout to support dax.
Goldwyn Rodrigues (3):
dax: replace mmap entry in case of CoW
fs: dedup file range to use a compare function
dax: memcpy before zeroing range
Shiyang Ruan (4):
dax: Introduce dax_copy_edges() for COW.
dax: copy data before write.
xfs: handle copy-on-write in fsdax write() path.
xfs: support dedupe for fsdax.
