      Description

      Shrinking directories in ldiskfs would be desirable for cases where a directory had a large number of files created, but the files are deleted and the directory is empty and could be deallocated.

      There is a patch submitted to upstream ext4 that is the start of the support for this functionality, but it is not very aggressive about removing directory blocks: https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/1048658/

      There is intended to be additional work in this area to improve the directory shrinking functionality.
