    Patch in this message
    Subject[RFC] [WIP] Unbork fs.h, 3 of 3
    This is the third patch of a series that will eventually remove the
    filesystem-specific includes, the struct inode union and the struct
    super_block union from linux/fs.h. See part 1 of this series for a
    description of the approach.

    This patch changes the ext2 filesystem declaration, giving ext2 its own
    private inode cache. The <ext2_fs_i> include is removed from linus/fs.h and
    moved to ext2_fs.h. The ext2_inode_info member of the fs.h inode union is
    removed. With the union out of the picture, ext2 inodes are somewhat
    so the practical effect of this is a small saving of cache memory.

    If this approach meets with general approval, I will procede with the removal
    of the ext2 member of the super_block union.

    To apply this patch:

    cd /your/source/tree
    cat this/patch | patch -p0

    I strongly recommended that this patch not be tested on a system containing
    valuable data - user mode linux is the way to go.
