libcfs in lustre has a resizeable hashtable. Linux already has a resizeable hashtable, rhashtable, which is better is most metrics. See https://lwn.net/Articles/751374/ in a few days for an introduction to rhashtable.
This series converts lustre to use rhashtable. This affects several different tables, and each is different is various ways. There are two outstanding issues. One is that a bug in rhashtable means that we cannot enable auto-shrinking in one of the tables. That is documented as appropriate and should be fixed soon. The other is that rhashtable has an atomic_t which counts the elements in a hash table. At least one table in lustre went to some trouble to avoid any table-wide atomics, so that could lead to a regression. I'm hoping that rhashtable can be enhanced with the option of a per-cpu counter, or similar. I have enabled automatic shrinking on all tables where it makes sense and doesn't trigger the bug. I have also removed all hints concerning min/max size - I cannot see how these could be useful. The dump_pgcache debugfs file provided some interesting challenges. I think I have cleaned it up enough so that it all makes sense. An extra pair of eyes examining that code in particular would be appreciated. This series passes all the same tests that pass before the patches are applied.
