Heh, glad that the timing worked out :)

Yeah, good catch. Lets try this one again...


Subject: r/o bind mounts: clean up OCFS2 nlink handling
From: Dave Hansen <haveblue@us.ibm.com>

OCFS2 does some operations on i_nlink, then reverts them if some of its
operations fail to complete. This does not fit in well with the
drop_nlink() logic where we expect i_nlink to stay at zero once it gets there.

So, delay all of the nlink operations until we're sure that the operations
have completed. Also, introduce a small helper to check whether an inode
has proper "unlinkable" i_nlink counts no matter whether it is a directory or
regular inode.

This patch is broken out from the others because it does contain some
logical changes.
