The patch titled
     ext3: allocate ->s_blockgroup_lock separately
has been removed from the -mm tree.  Its filename was
     ext3-allocate-s_blockgroup_lock-separately.patch

This patch was dropped because it was merged into mainline or a subsystem tree

The current -mm tree may be found at http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/mmotm/

Subject: ext3: allocate ->s_blockgroup_lock separately
From: Pekka Enberg <penberg@cs.helsinki.fi>

As spotted by kmemtrace, struct ext3_sb_info is 17152 bytes on 64-bit
which makes it a very bad fit for SLAB allocators.  The culprit of the
wasted memory is ->s_blockgroup_lock which can be as big as 16 KB when
NR_CPUS >= 32.

To fix that, allocate ->s_blockgroup_lock, which fits nicely in a order 2
page in the worst case, separately.  This shinks down struct ext3_sb_info
enough to fit a 1 KB slab cache so now we allocate 16 KB + 1 KB instead of
32 KB saving 15 KB of memory.
