ocfs2: allocation hints
Mark Fasheh [Mon, 5 Jun 2006 20:41:00 +0000 (16:41 -0400)]
Record the most recently used allocation group on the allocation context, so
that subsequent allocations can attempt to optimize for contiguousness.
Local alloc especially should benefit from this as the current chain search
tends to let it spew across the disk.
