Subject: [PATCH 02/20] ovl: stop using d_alloc_anon()/d_instantiate_anon()
Date: Fri, 24 Nov 2023 06:06:26 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20231124060644.576611-2-viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20231124060644.576611-1-viro@zeniv.linux.org.uk>

From: Amir Goldstein <amir73il@gmail.com>

Commit f9c34674bc60 ("vfs: factor out helpers d_instantiate_anon() and
d_alloc_anon()") was introduced so overlayfs could initialize a non-dir
disconnected overlay dentry before overlay inode is attached to it.

Since commit ("0af950f57fef ovl: move ovl_entry into ovl_inode"), all
ovl_obtain_alias() can do is set DCACHE_OP_*REVALIDATE flags in ->d_flags
and OVL_E_UPPER_ALIAS flag in ->d_fsdata.

The DCACHE_OP_*REVALIDATE flags and OVL_E_UPPER_ALIAS flag are irrelevant
for a disconnected non-dir dentry, so it is better to use d_obtain_alias()
instead of open coding it.
