    Default Btrfs To Land A Lot Of Bug/Performance Fixes In Linux 3.15

    Phoronix: Btrfs To Land A Lot Of Bug/Performance Fixes In Linux 3.15

    The Btrfs file-system changes for the Linux 3.15 kernel mostly deal with bug fixes and performance fixes while some corruption fixes are also expected to come...

    granted this is the same procedure for every kernel

    but some additional rough edges (including data corruption) have been fixed this time (not so sure about for 3.14)

    there seems to be some high memory usage and potential of locking up the system though (both ext4 with 3.13 vanilla kernel state and btrfs patched up)

    jfs is fine

    experienced this while compiling stuff on zram (/var/tmp/portage)

    added some cherry-picked less locking patches and will try again if it helped

    during test between 3.12 3.13 and 3.14 pre-released kernel was verified a regressin on BTRFS performace. Final 3.14 kernel is stil affected by this regression? Could you make new tests? What's best file system in USB flash? F2FS?
