1. NAME

journal_extend - extend buffer credits.

2. SYNOPSIS

int journal_extend(handle_t *  handle , int  nblocks );

3. ARGUMENTS

handle
    handle to AqextendAq

nblocks
    nr blocks to try to extend by.

4. DESCRIPTION

Some transactions, such as large extends and truncates, can be done atomically all at once or in several stages. The operation requests a credit for a number of buffer modications in advance, but can extend its credit if it needs more.

journal_extend tries to give the running handle more buffer credits. It does not guarantee that allocation - this is a best-effort only. The calling process MUST be able to deal cleanly with a failure to extend here.

Return 0 on success, non-zero on failure.

return code < 0 implies an error return code > 0 implies normal transaction-full status.
