|| ||[RESEND][PATCH 0/9] Ext3: extended attribute sharing fixes and in-inode EAs|

it seems this patchset did not make it through to LKML, so I'm trying to
This set of patches contains cleanups and fixes to the mbcache and ext2/ext3
xattr code, and adds completely reworks Alex Tomas's in-inode attribute
patch. I did a fair amount of review and testing on all the patches; Andrew
Tridgell did some testing as well. As far as I can tell the patches are ready
for direct merging. Alternatively the fixes could be merged while the
in-inode attribute support could go into -mm; either way won't make much
difference for me. Please comment.
In order for the patches to apply, please first revert Alex's in-inode-ea
patch. The patch was not ready for merging yet. I could retrofit the rewrite
on top of Alex's patch, but this would cause a lot of work, and would benefit
the code quality in no way.
Alex's patch was merged in this changeset:
All the patches contain decsriptions. The bugfix patches in this set are:
A reverse diff of Alex's patch.
A small mbcache cleanup.
Convert the mbcache to protect cache entries readers/writer
style. This fixes an attribute sharing race.
Don't use journal_release_buffer in ext3 xattrs; it's unsafe.
Factor our common xattr code.
The patches for in-inode attribute support are:
Prepare xattr code for in-inode xattrs.
Hide ext3_get_inode_loc in_mem optimization from users;
the optimization applies differently with in-inode xattrs.
In-inode attribute support. This is the original patch from Alex
heavily cleaned up.
Please apply the patches in this order:
