I didn't change that, though, the ordering of locking unrelated
dentries and the code is already in rename code and is not touched
during this patch set.

Of course I want code review. I am not going to just do everything
you say that I don't agree with, but I will explain why every time
(as I have done to all your points).

I would prefer more in-depth review than from someone who doesn't know
d_lock protects d_flags, but any and all help is welcome. Even minor
nitpicking or cleanups are welcome if they are relevant to the patches.

Thanks,
Nick

PS. don't accuse me of not wanting a code review, because you're just
projecting. To paraphrase you:

I don't have to justify myself to you, nick, only the maintainers, so
I'm not answering.

In response to my questions.
