Subject[PATCH] 2.5.16 iget_locked [4/6]
From

Now that we have no more users of iget4 we can kill the function and the
associated read_inode2 callback (i.e. the 'reiserfs specific hack').

Document iget5_locked as the replacement for iget4 in filesystems/porting.

+---
+[mandatory]
+
+iget4() and the read_inode2 callback have been superseded by iget5_locked()
+which has the following prototype,
+
+ struct inode *iget5_locked(struct super_block *sb, unsigned long ino,
+ int (*test)(struct inode *, void *),
+ int (*set)(struct inode *, void *),
+ void *data);
+
+'test' is an additional function that can be used when the inode
+number is not sufficient to identify the actual file object. 'set'
+should be a non-blocking function that initializes those parts of a
+newly created inode to allow the test function to succeed. 'data' is
+passed as an opaque value to both test and set functions.
+
+When the inode has been created by iget5_locked(), it will be returned with
+the I_NEW flag set and will still be locked. read_inode has not been
+called so the file system still has to finalize the initialization. Once
+the inode is initialized it must be unlocked by calling unlock_new_inode().
+
+There is also a simpler iget_locked function that just takes the
+superblock and inode number as arguments.
+
+e.g.
+ inode = iget_locked(sb, ino);
+ if (inode->i_state & I_NEW) {
+ read_inode_from_disk(inode);
+ unlock_new_inode(inode);
+ }
