A register such as a memory mapped control register stores a vector lane number (VLX) indicating the number of vector lanes to be powered. A decoder converts this VLX into a vector lane control word, each bit controlling the ON of OFF state of the corresponding vector lane. This number of contiguous least significant vector lanes are powered. In the preferred embodiment the stored data VLX indicates that 2[superscript]VLX [/superscript]contiguous least significant vector lanes are to be powered. Thus the number of vector lanes powered is limited to an integral power of 2. This manner of coding produces a very compact controlling bit field while obtaining substantially all the power saving advantage of individually controlling the power of all vector lanes.

In one aspect, a method of managing a storage system having one or more storage devices includes a tiered data structure in which each node has a logical ID and entries in the nodes reference other nodes in the tiered data structure using the logical IDs. As a result, when a child node is updated and stored to a new location, but retains its logical ID, its parent node does not need to be updated, because the logical ID in the entry referencing the child node remains unchanged. Further, the storage system uses a secondary mapping table to translate the logical IDs to the corresponding physical locations of the corresponding nodes. Additionally, the secondary mapping table is cached in volatile memory, and as a result, the physical location of a required node is determined without accessing non-volatile memory.
