Does that break something, or is this an optimization?

The original code is broken, would not detect if th.
the entire file was a hole (no extents) regardless of the value of partialmax.

(multi-stream) and no extents exist (entire file is a hole), is there
anything to restore? Nope so why call parial_reg().  If you do call it
you will not find anything to restore:

8977         /* If not found, find a free one, fill it in and return */
8978         if ( ! isptr ) {
8979                 mlog(MLOG_NITTY | MLOG_NOLOCK,
8980                         "partial_reg: no entry found for %llu\n",
8981                 /* find a free one */
8982                 for (i=0; i < partialmax; i++ ) {
8983                         if (persp->a.parrest[i].is_ino == 0) {
8984                                 int j;
8986                                 isptr = &persp->a.parrest[i];
8987                                 isptr->is_ino = ino;
8988                                 persp->a.parrestcnt++;
8990                                 /* Clear all endoffsets (this value is

8994                                 for (j=0, bsptr=isptr->is_bs;
8995                                      j < drivecnt; j++, bsptr++) {
8996                                      bsptr->endoffset = 0;
8997                                 }
8999                                 goto found;
9000                         }
9001                 }
9003                 /* Should never get here. */

And we reach the dreaded comment above :)

Also remove the uneeded check in partial_reg() to detect if this is a
multistream restore.

Why is it unneeded?

The check is unneeded because with my fix,  partial_reg will never be
called if partialmax==0 which also means that . Do we really need the extra 
Scratch the above :)
I meant to say the check was needed in the original code because of the bug explained above.

create a directory with several files with at least 1 extent
create a file with no extents (i.e. touch empty_file)

Current code will fail for multistream dump/restore and will also fail for single stream if the partialmax == 0 check is removed from partial_reg().

In my opinion that check was just a workaround for single stream and no one tested an empty file with no extents, just file with one extent and the entire file is a hole.


 From a quick read, if partialmax == 0 that measn only 1 drive,
and no streams - so it does seem like partial_reg() would have
no work to do, so I'm a  little confused (but I'm also a total
n00b here).e

This patch says it fixes multi stream support - what was broken?
Is there a testcase (or should there be) that shows the problem?

I see changes but I don't know enough about xfsdump to know
what's broken & what's being fixed, can you explain a bit more?

Sorry I thought that it was self explanatory ;)
