Commit Message

Ian Kent Nov. 23, 2018, 10:41 a.m. UTC
Al Viro made some suggestions to improve the implementation
of commit 0633da48f0 "fix autofs_sbi() does not check super
block type".

The check is unnessesary in all cases except for ioctl usage
so placing the check in the super block accessor function
adds a small overhead to the common case where it isn't
needed.

So it's sufficient to do this in the ioctl code only.

Also the check in the ioctl code is needlessly complex.

It's naughty to declare externs in C files, for various reasons.  Is
this OK?

OK, I understand the reasoning I guess.

The change below is fine.

Thanks, Ian.
