Subject: [PATCH 07/13] VFS/namei: abort RCU-walk on symlink if atime needs updating.
Date: Mon, 16 Mar 2015 15:43:20 +1100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20150316044320.23648.11587.stgit@notabene.brown> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20150316043602.23648.52734.stgit@notabene.brown>

touch_atime is not RCU-safe, and so cannot be called on an
RCU walk.
However in situations where RCU-walk makes a difference,
the symlink will likely to accessed much more often than
it is useful to update the atime.

So split out the test of "Does the atime actually need to be updated"
into  atime_needs_update(), and only allow RCU-walk on a symlink if
that fails.
