mkisofs has to map filenames as they exist in the filesystem to shorter names as specified by the ISO9660 specification.
Some example mappings:

  • ABCDE002.EXT         -> ABCDE002.EXT
  • ABCDEFGHI.EXT        -> ABCDE000.EXT

In mkisofs, this mapping is done with three nested for-loops.  Unfortunately, the for-loops start at 0 each time around.
So, for the ABCDEFGHIJK.EXT example above, a mapping to ABCDE000.EXT is tried first, then a mapping to ABCDE001.EXT, etc., until arriving at the available mapping to ABCDE003.EXT.
If these tests have to be done for thousands of files, the result is a significant slowdown of the operation of mkisofs.

The patch saves the indexes from the last execution of the for-loops, and starts the next run through the for-loops at these indexes, thereby saving the unneccessary check for usable unique short names when it is known that this check failed in an earlier iteration.
