Subject[PATCH] [54/223] reiserfs: don't acquire lock recursively in reiserfs_acl_chmod
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Frederic Weisbecker <fweisbec@gmail.com>

commit 238af8751f64a75f8b638193353b1c31ea32e738 upstream.

reiserfs_acl_chmod() can be called by reiserfs_set_attr() and then take
the reiserfs lock a second time. Thereafter it may call journal_begin()
that definitely requires the lock not to be nested in order to release
it before taking the journal mutex because the reiserfs lock depends on
the journal mutex already.

So, aviod nesting the lock in reiserfs_acl_chmod().
