Subject: [patch 0/10] buffered write deadlock fix
Date: Sat, 13 Jan 2007 04:24:15 +0100 (CET)	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20070113011159.9449.4327.sendpatchset@linux.site> (raw)

The following set of patches attempt to fix the buffered write
locking problems (and there are a couple of peripheral patches
and cleanups there too).

This does pass the write deadlock tests that otherwise fail.

Has survived a few hours of fsx-linux on ext2 and 3.

Patches against 2.6.20-rc4. I didn't have the heart to attempt
to rebase them on -mm, at least until I get some feedback ;)

Thanks,
Nick
