Subject[RFC][PATCH 09/10] fs: Remove unlikely() from fget_light()
From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com>

There's an unlikely() in fget_light() that assumes the file ref count
will be 1. Running the annotate branch profiler on a desktop that is
performing daily tasks (running firefox, evolution, xchat and is also part
of a distcc farm), it shows that the ref count is not 1 that often.
