Subjectfs: inode freeing and hash lookup via RCU
Date
Hi Al,

The following three patches implement the extra functionality you
wanted on top of the inode lock breakup. The first patch lifts the
i_lock up out of writeback_single_inode(), the second implements RCU
freeing of inodes via SLAB_DESTROY_BY_RCU, and the third converts
inode hash lookup operations to use RCU list walks. Comments are
welcome.

Cheers,

Dave.
