    Subject[37/39] nilfs2: fix sync silent failure

    2.6.33-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

    From: Ryusuke Konishi <>

    commit 973bec34bfc1bc2465646181653d67f767d418c8 upstream.

    As of 32a88aa1, __sync_filesystem() will return 0 if s_bdi is not set.
    And nilfs does not set s_bdi anywhere. I noticed this problem by the
    warning introduced by the recent commit 5129a469 ("Catch filesystem
    lacking s_bdi").

    WARNING: at fs/super.c:959 vfs_kern_mount+0xc5/0x14e()
    Hardware name: PowerEdge 2850
    Modules linked in: nilfs2 loop tpm_tis tpm tpm_bios video shpchp pci_hotplug output dcdbas

    This ensures to set s_bdi for nilfs and fixes the sync silent failure.
