That makes no sense.

If it used to work before that patch, then this is a regression and
the patch needs to be reverted.

Yes, the old code apparently used to set "o2hb_debug_dir" to an error
pointer when debugfs was compiled out, but since debugfs was compiled
out, that error pointer was probably never actually *used*. So things
presumably worked.

Now, it hangs, according to Huang Ying. If so, that's clearly a
regression. That means that commit e2ac55b6a8e3 ("ocfs2: incorrect
check for debugfs returns") needs to be reverted or fixed.

Andrew?
