Subject: [RFC v2 1/6] fs: provide unlocked helper for freeze_super()
Date: Sat, 17 Apr 2021 00:10:21 +0000
Message-ID: <20210417001026.23858-2-mcgrof@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210417001026.23858-1-mcgrof@kernel.org>

freeze_super() holds a write lock, however we wish to also enable
callers which already hold the write lock. To do this provide a helper
and make freeze_super() use it. This way, all that freeze_super() does
now is lock handling and active count management.

This change has no functional changes.
