Subject[PATCH 02/11] ovl: remove WARN_ON() real inode attributes mismatch
Date
From: Amir Goldstein <amir73il@gmail.com>

Overlayfs should cope with online changes to underlying layer
without crashing the kernel, which is what xfstest overlay/019
checks.

This test may sometimes trigger WARN_ON() in ovl_create_or_link()
when linking an overlay inode that has been changed on underlying
layer.

Remove those WARN_ON() to prevent the stress test from failing.
