Subject: [RFC][PATCH 07/30] r/o bind mounts: stub functions
Date: Fri, 08 Feb 2008 14:26:55 -0800	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20080208222655.A715DA91@kernel> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20080208222641.6024A7CC@kernel>


This patch adds two function mnt_want_write() and mnt_drop_write().  These are
used like a lock pair around and fs operations that might cause a write to the
filesystem.

Before these can become useful, we must first cover each place in the VFS
where writes are performed with a want/drop pair.  When that is complete, we
can actually introduce code that will safely check the counts before allowing
r/w<->r/o transitions to occur.
