Subject: [PATCH] nfs: fix congestion control
Date: Tue, 16 Jan 2007 23:08:43 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1168985323.5975.53.camel@lappy> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20070116135325.3441f62b.akpm@osdl.org>

Subject: nfs: fix congestion control

The current NFS client congestion logic is severely broken, it marks the
backing device congested during each nfs_writepages() call and implements
its own waitqueue.

Replace this by a more regular congestion implementation that puts a cap
on the number of active writeback pages and uses the bdi congestion waitqueue.

NFSv[34] commit pages are allowed to go unchecked as long as we are under 
the dirty page limit and not in direct reclaim.

	A buxom young lass from Neale's Flat,
	Bore triplets, named Matt, Pat and Tat.
	"Oh Lord," she protested,
	"'Tis somewhat congested ...
	"You've given me no tit for Tat."
