[PATCH 3.18 087/144] Btrfs: avoid syncing log in the fast fsync path when not necessary




3.18-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit b659ef027792219b590d67a2baf1643a93727d29 ]

Commit 3a8b36f37806 ("Btrfs: fix data loss in the fast fsync path") added
a performance regression for that causes an unnecessary sync of the log
trees (fs/subvol and root log trees) when 2 consecutive fsyncs are done
against a file, without no writes or any metadata updates to the inode in
between them and if a transaction is committed before the second fsync is
called.

Huang Ying reported this to lkml (https://lkml.org/lkml/2015/3/18/99)
after a test sysbench test that measured a -62% decrease of file io
requests per second for that tests' workload.

The test is:

  echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
  echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/scaling_governor
  echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu2/cpufreq/scaling_governor
  echo performance > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu3/cpufreq/scaling_governor
  mkfs -t btrfs /dev/sda2
  mount -t btrfs /dev/sda2 /fs/sda2
  cd /fs/sda2
  for ((i = 0; i < 1024; i++)); do fallocate -l 67108864 testfile.$i; done
  sysbench --test=fileio --max-requests=0 --num-threads=4 --max-time=600 \
    --file-test-mode=rndwr --file-total-size=68719476736 --file-io-mode=sync \
    --file-num=1024 run

A test on kvm guest, running a debug kernel gave me the following results:

Without 3a8b36f378060d:             16.01 reqs/sec
With 3a8b36f378060d:                 3.39 reqs/sec
With 3a8b36f378060d and this patch: 16.04 reqs/sec
