Subject: configfs lookup race fix
Date: Wed, 25 Aug 2021 08:49:02 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210825064906.1694233-1-hch@lst.de> (raw)

Hi all,

this series takes the patch from Sishuai, with the initial refactoring
split into reviewable prep patches and the suggestion from Al taken
into account.  It does not fix the pre-existing leak of ->s_dentry and
->d_fsdata that Al noticed yet - that will take a little more time.
