    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.


    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.
