Subject[PATCH 07/11] vfs: Unmap underlying metadata of new data buffers only when buffer is mapped
Date
When we do delayed allocation of some buffer, we want to signal to VFS that
the buffer is new (set buffer_new) so that it properly zeros out everything.
But we don't have the buffer mapped yet so we cannot really unmap underlying
metadata in this state. Make VFS avoid doing unmapping of metadata when the
buffer is not yet mapped.
