Subject[PATCH] xfs: revert to double-buffering readdir
The current readdir implementation deadlocks on a btree buffers locks
because nfsd calls back into ->lookup from the filldir callback. The
only short-term fix for this is to revert to the old inefficient
double-buffering scheme.

This patch does exactly that and reverts xfs_file_readdir to what's
basically the 2.6.23 version minus the uio and vnops junk.

I'll try to find something more optimal for 2.6.25 or at least find a
way to use the proper version for local access.
