Description Steve Whitehouse 2007-03-27 15:33:32 UTC
GFS2 has a set of rgrp flags defined as part of its on disk format. The most important of these is: GFS2_RGF_NOALLOC. Currently the gfs2 rgrp code ignores all of these flags. We will eventually need to add an interface which allows setting of the flags, but for now, just making sure that the NOALLOC flag is obeyed correctly is the priority so that its there for future use. Ben, CCing you on this one since you've just been working on a bug in a smilar area of the code.

Created attachment 151411 [details] Patch to fix this bug This fixes the bug. Although it doesn't deal with all the flags, I can't currently see any reasonable use for the data/metadata flag (in fact, due to the allocation policy of GFS2, its actually a non-inode/inode flag despite its name). So the only one which is really important here is the "noalloc" flag.
