Subject[PATCH] Clean up refcounting on filesystems
Date
Hi Al,

This gets rid of the hacky module count reentry, by holding a
reference count per mount, rather than per superblock. The additional
field to struct vfsmount is slightly gratuitous, but nice and
explicit. Minor collateral cleanups.

Lightly tested here, seems to work.

Thoughts?
Rusty.

Name: get_filesystem patch
Author: Rusty Russell
Status: Tested on 2.5.55

D: This attaches the reference count of filesystem to the number of
D: mounts, not the superblocks. This avoids the horrible re-entry
D: hack in get_filesystem, and has the added bonus of being clearer to
D: the user reading the reference count.
D:
D: It also renames put_filesystem to put_fs_type, to match get_fs_type.
