    Subject[patch 21/47] reiserfs: discard prealloc in reiserfs_delete_inode
    2.6.25-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us

    From: Jeff Mahoney <>

    commit eb35c218d83ec0780d9db869310f2e333f628702 upstream

    With the removal of struct file from the xattr code,
    reiserfs_file_release() isn't used anymore, so the prealloc isn't
    discarded. This causes hangs later down the line.

    This patch adds it to reiserfs_delete_inode. In most cases it will be a
    no-op due to it already having been called, but will avoid hangs with
