Subject[RFC PATCH] btrfs: Fix memory ordering of unlocked dio reads vs truncate
Date
Signed-off-by: Nikolay Borisov <nborisov@suse.com>
---

Hello,

Sending it as an RFC for the time being to see how people are going to react
and also I'd like some feedback on the mb semantics. For this purposed I've
CC'ed some memory ordering people :)
