Make on-disk index representation separate from in-core one
This converts the index explicitly on read and write to its on-disk format, allowing the in-core format to contain more flags, and be simpler. In particular, the in-core format is now host-endian (as opposed to the on-disk one that is network endian in order to be able to be shared across machines) and as a result we can dispense with all the htonl/ntohl on accesses to the cache_entry fields. This will make it easier to make use of various temporary flags that do not exist in the on-disk format. Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <>
