Subject: [PATCH 4.11 112/115] xfs: xfs_trans_alloc_empty
Date: Mon,  5 Jun 2017 18:18:25 +0200
Message-ID: <20170605153102.219732457@linuxfoundation.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20170605153056.650217313@linuxfoundation.org>

4.11-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>

This is a partial cherry-pick of commit e89c041338
("xfs: implement the GETFSMAP ioctl"), which also adds this helper, and
a great example of why feature patches should be properly split into
their parts.
