Subject[PATCH 03/17] vfs: Remove syncing from generic_file_direct_write() and generic_file_buffered_write()
Date
generic_file_direct_write() and generic_file_buffered_write() called
generic_osync_inode() if it was called on O_SYNC file or IS_SYNC inode. But
this is superfluous since generic_file_aio_write() does the syncing as well.
Also XFS and OCFS2 which call these functions directly handle syncing
themselves. So let's have a single place where syncing happens:
generic_file_aio_write().
