Subject[PATCH 10/20] fs: Stop abusing find_inode_fast in iunique
Date
From: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de>

Stop abusing find_inode_fast for iunique and opencode the inode hash walk.
Introduce a new iunique_lock to protect the iunique counters once inode_lock
is removed.

Based on a patch originally from Nick Piggin.
