This patch has significantly changed locking scheme in
lookup functions. This was to solve race problems which
surfaced while testing on SMP system.
I tested this patch on 32-bit system Only with 10M for
page-cache and 5M for swap-cache (RAM: 128M).
I think, porting compression algos. to 64-bit is all thats
needed for 64-bit ccache support. Please mail me
(or mailing list) if you are interested in this.
It will be great help if anyone can please provide
code review for this patch :)
* Changelog: ccache-alpha-007 (applies to 2.6.18)
Changes since ccahe-alpha-006
-- Major locking changes in lookup functions.
-- Fixed chunk_head usage count which could lead to 'double free'
-- Removed abt. 500 LOC.
