The original FIEMAP patch did not define the bits, btrfs would like to use a
flag for compressed extents. The PHYS_LENGTH flag emerged during patchset
revisions to keep backward compatibility and flexible fiemap API.

Currently, the 'filefrag' utility has no way to recognize and denote a
compressed extent. As implemented in btrfs right now, the compression step
splits a big extent into smaller chunks and this is reported as a heavily
fragmented file. Adding the flag to filefrag will at least give some
explanation why, this has been confusing users for some time already.

fiemap_fill_next_extent is extended and takes argument to fill the physical
length.

V5:
Physical length is by default undefined. Btrfs use of compressed flag was
enhanced to reflect the fiemap changes. Patches reordered so the generic fiemap
go first.

V4:
The physical length is always set and equal to logical, or different and
then sets the COMPRESSED flag.
fiemap_extent::fe_length renamed to fe_logi_length

V3:
Based on feedback from Andreas, implement #1 from V2, current users of
fiemap_fill_next_extent (fs/, ext4, gfs2, ocfs2, nilfs2, xfs) updated
accordingly, no functional change.

V2:
Based on feedback from Andreas, the fiemap_extent is now able to hold the
physical extent length, to be filled by the filesystem callback.

1) extend fiemap_fill_next_extent to take phys_length and update all
   users (ext4, gfs2, ocfs2, nilfs2, xfs)


David Sterba (6):
  fiemap: fix comment at EXTENT_DATA_ENCRYPTED
  fiemap: add fe_phys_length and EXTENT_PHYS_LENGTH flag
  fiemap: add FIEMAP_EXTENT_DATA_COMPRESSED flag
  Documentation/fiemap: Document DATA_COMPRESSED and PHYS_LENGTH flags
  fiemap: rename fe_length to fe_logi_length
  btrfs: set FIEMAP_EXTENT_DATA_COMPRESSED for compressed extents
