    ceph: make seeky readdir more efficient · 79162547
    Yan, Zheng authored
    Current cephfs client uses string to indicate start position of
    readdir. The string is last entry of previous readdir reply.
    This approach does not work for seeky readdir because we can
    not easily convert the new postion to a string. For seeky readdir,
    mds needs to return dentries from the beginning. Client keeps
    retrying if the reply does not contain the dentry it wants.
    In current version of ceph, mds sorts CDentry in its cache in
    hash order. Client also uses dentry hash to compose dir postion.
    For seeky readdir, if client passes the hash part of dir postion
    to mds. mds can avoid replying useless dentries.
