SubjectRe: possible (ext4 related?) memory leak in kernel 2.6.26
Here are updates to the two patches I sent you.  The first fixes some
printk labels and requires that the debugging dump ioctl be triggered
by root; the second fixes the think-o that Eric pointed out earlier
this morning.

- Ted

Add a ioctl which dumps out all of the in-use buffer heads for a block device

Also make sure the buffer heads are marked clean before submitting bh
for writing. The previous code was marking the buffer head dirty,
which would have forced an unneeded write (and seek) to the journal
for no good reason.
