inode_congested: test whether an inode is congested

NAME

inode_congested - test whether an inode is congested

SYNOPSIS

int inode_congested(struct inode inode, int cong_bits);

ARGUMENTS

inode

inode to test for congestion (may be NULL)

cong_bits

mask of WB_[a]sync_congested bits to test

DESCRIPTION

Tests whether inode is congested. cong_bits is the mask of congestion bits to test and the return value is the mask of set bits.

If cgroup writeback is enabled for inode, the congestion state is determined by whether the cgwb (cgroup bdi_writeback) for the blkcg associated with inode is congested; otherwise, the root wb's congestion state is used.

inode is allowed to be NULL as this function is often called on mapping->host which is NULL for the swapper space.
