40 * The mapper implements the kernel cache for a given file or directory.
41 * There is one mapper per file/dir. It is implemented as a three levels radix tree,
42 * entirely stored in the same cluster as the inode representing the file/dir.
43 * - The fast retrieval key is the page index in the file.
44 *   The ix1_width, ix2_width, ix3_width sub-indexes are configuration parameters.
45 * - The leaves are pointers on physical page descriptors, dynamically allocated
46 *   in the local cluster.
47 * - In a given cluster, a mapper is a "private" structure: a thread accessing the mapper
48 *   must be running in the cluster containing it (can be a local thread or a RPC thread).
49 * - The mapper is protected by a blocking "rwlock", to support several simultaneous
50 *   readers, and only one writer. This lock implement a busy waiting policy.
51 * - The mapper_get_page() function that return a page descriptor pointer from a page
52 *   index in file is in charge of handling the miss on the mapper cache.
53 * - The vfs_mapper_move_page() function access the file system to handle a mapper miss,
54 *   or update a dirty page on device.
55 * - The vfs_mapper_load_all() functions is used to load all pages of a given file
56 *   or directory into the mapper.
57 * - the mapper_move_user() function is used to move data to or from an user buffer.
58 *   This user space buffer can be physically distributed in several clusters.
59 * - the mapper_move_kernel() function is used to move data to or from a remote kernel
60 *   buffer, that can be physically located in any cluster.
61 * - In the present implementation the cache size for a given file increases on demand,
62 *   and the  allocated memory is only released when the mapper/inode is destroyed.
