[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 25/51] [GFS2] Reduce truncate IO traffic



From: Wendy Cheng <wcheng redhat com>

Current GFS2 setattr call unconditionally invokes do_shrink even the
requested size and actual file size are equal. This has generated large
amount of extra IOs found during NFS benchmark runs. This patch moves
the relevant logic out of shrink code path. Since setattr is a system
call, the time stamps update is still required.
