[PATCH 1/6] ext3: Remove i_mutex use from ext3_quota_write()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


We don't need i_mutex in ext3_quota_write() because writes to quota file
are serialized by dqio_mutex anyway. Changes to quota files outside of quota
code are forbidded and enforced by NOATIME and IMMUTABLE bits.
