fs: remove inode_lock from iput_final and prune_icache
Now that inode state changes are protected by the inode->i_lock and the inode LRU manipulations by the inode_lru_lock, we can remove the inode_lock from prune_icache and the initial part of iput_final(). instead of using the inode_lock to protect the inode during iput_final, use the inode->i_lock instead. This protects the inode against new references being taken while we change the inode state to I_FREEING, as well as preventing prune_icache from grabbing the inode while we are manipulating it. Hence we no longer need the inode_lock in iput_final prior to setting I_FREEING on the inode. For prune_icache, we no longer need the inode_lock to protect the LRU list, and the inodes themselves are protected against freeing races by the inode->i_lock. Hence we can lift the inode_lock from prune_icache as well. Signed-off-by: Dave Chinner <dchinner@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Al Viro <viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>
