Subject: ext4: move aio completion after unwritten extent conversion
X-Git-Url: http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux%2Fkernel%2Fgit%2Ftytso%2Fext4.git;a=commitdiff_plain;h=5b3ff237bef43b9e7fb7d1eb858e29b73fd664f9

ext4: move aio completion after unwritten extent conversion

This patch is to be applied upon Christoph's "direct-io: move aio_complete
into ->end_io" patch. It adds iocb and result fields to struct ext4_io_end_t,
so that we can call aio_complete from  ext4_end_io_nolock() after the extent
conversion has finished.

I have verified with Christoph's aio-dio test that used to fail after a few
runs on an original kernel but now succeeds on the patched kernel.

See http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.file-systems.ext4/19659 for details.
