SubjectJFS resize=0 problem in 2.6.0
Let me know if I'm missing the goal of the code here, but lines 261-273
of linux-2.6.0/fs/jfs/super.c are:

case Opt_resize:
{
char *resize = args[0].from;
if (!resize || !*resize) { /* LINE 264 HERE */
*newLVSize = sb->s_bdev->bd_inode->i_size >>
sb->s_blocksize_bits;
if (*newLVSize == 0)
printk(KERN_ERR
"JFS: Cannot determine volume size\n");
} else
*newLVSize = simple_strtoull(resize, &resize, 0);
break;
}
It seems to me that line 264 is attempting to test for the mount
paramater "resize=0", and when it comes across this, resize to the full
size of the volume. However, this doesn't work. I believe it should
test for the char '0' (*resize=='0'), not against literal zero.

Let me know if I'm way off base here. But the below patch does allow a
$ mount -o remount,resize=0 /mnt/test
to resize the jfs filesystem to the full size of the volume.


Ok, I've never submitted a patch before, but here goes:
