The branch can be fetched from my github:
Already merged lowmem mode fsck only works for extent/chunk tree check.
And for fs tree, it's still using original mode codes.
This makes btrfs check still eat tons of memory for large fs.
Now the new lowmem mode code will also cover fs tree now, to make
lowmem mode be really low-memory usage mode.
And the whole patchset goes through the whole fsck test cases, except
the following case:
006: There is a bug in root item repair code, causing backref error.
However old fsck has another bug to overwrite extent tree error,
so old fsck will only report error but still return 0.
That's an unrelated btrfsck repair bug, which I'll address it later.
015: Just wrong test cases. It's not a normal check-repair-check one.
So the check after repair will still report error.
Better to put it to fuzz test cases.
Further plan for lowmem mode is:
1) Add support for --repair
A lot of work again.
2) Separate original and lowmem mode codes into different files
300+K single source is really too large.
Better separate them into a dir and multiple files
3) Avoid using find_all_parents() in traversal function
In lowmmem mode, we are using find_all_parents() function to ensure
only the root with smallest objectid to check the leaf, so we can
save some IO.
However find_all_parents() is still a quite time consuming function, so
we'd better avoid calling that function.
