OK, I change the initial value of cur_reserved_blocks to 0 and increase its value only in the dec_valid_block(,node)_count process, to only take up the blocks which are just obsoleted. With this change, if it is OK for system activation before, it is OK after
as well. Please review the patch v2 I resent.

We'd better not let soft/hard reserved_blocks to eat all left free space, at
least needs to leave enough space for supporting system's activation.


when reserve_blocks is set to the value = user_block_count -
total_valid_block_count, then
the user free space can also drop to zero and has the same problem. IMO,
kernel does not need
to take this responsibility, it's android's responsibility.

As for the uid/gid, does current f2fs space management design consider

Upper layer application has considered this issue, as when free space touchs the
threshold, system will block any operation and give a hint to clean up user's
data. So w/o uid/gid reserved block, it will be OK. But for your requirement,
user free space will drop to zero, and before current reserved block number
touch soft reserved block limitation, user can only do deletion, so in this
time, if any system/service flow depends on file creation, could result in
blocking the system.

can just ensure the reserved space for file system no matter user/system
type. Whether the value of
reserved_blocks is OK or not, should not be filesystem's issue.
Filesystem just provide this interface,
and the upper layer, such as android vold should take care of the value
of reserved_blocks and make
sure its value is appropriate and will not block any activation of
system user, if it really happens, android
should change the value dynamically, it is fine, since we make
reserved_blocks to a soft version.
We can not make sure in strategy changing flow, there is no file creation
dependence. Even if we can, if the reserved_blocks is not appropriate, why not
setting it correctly before?

With this patch, f2fs can try its best to reserve space and get close to the
reserved_blocks, and the current value of achieved reserved_blocks can be shown
in real time.
Oh, this looks like a soft limitation in quota system, but original
reserved_blocks implementation likes a hard one, so this patch changes the
semantics of reserved_blocks.

Actually, I doubt that it would be hard to reserve all left free space in real
user scenario now, since system user's activation may depend on free space of
data partition due to file creation requirement, so w/o supporting feature of
uid/gid reserved block, soft reservation will block any activation of system
user, such as android.
