There are redundant lines in allocate_data_block.
In this function, we call refresh_sit_entry with old seg and old curseg.
After that, we call locate_dirty_segment with old curseg.
But, the new address is always allocated from old curseg and
we call locate_dirty_segment with old curseg in refresh_sit_entry.
So, we do not need to call locate_dirty_segment with old curseg again.
We've discussed like below:
"When considering SSR, we need to take care of the following scenario.
- old segno : X
- new address : Z
- old curseg : Y
This means, a new block is supposed to be written to Z from X.
And Z is newly allocated in the same path from Y.
In that case, we should trigger locate_dirty_segment for Y, since
it was a current_segment and can be dirty owing to SSR.
But that was not included in the dirty list."
"We already choosed old curseg(Y) and then we allocate new address(Z) from old
curseg(Y). After that we call refresh_sit_entry(old address, new address).
In the funcation, we call locate_dirty_segment with old seg and old curseg.
So calling locate_dirty_segment after refresh_sit_entry again is redundant."
