[PATCH 12/19] f2fs: scan next nat page to reuse free nids in there

From: Jaegeuk Kim
Date: Mon Mar 18 2013 - 01:52:36 EST

When we build new free nids, let's scan the just next NAT page instead of
skipping a couple of previously scanned pages in order to reuse free nids in
Otherwise, we can use too much wide range of nids even though several nids were
deallocated, and also their node pages can be cached in the node_inode's address
This means that we can retain lots of clean pages in the main memory, which
induces mm's reclaiming overhead.
