Subject[PATCH 2/3] fs: inode_set_flags() replace opencoded set_mask_bits()
Date
It seems that 5f16f3225b0624 and 00a1a053ebe5, both with same commitlog
("ext4: atomically set inode->i_flags in ext4_set_inode_flags()")
introduced the set_mask_bits API, but somehow missed not using it in
ext4 in the end

Also, set_mask_bits is used in fs quite a bit and we can possibly come up
with a generic llsc based implementation (w/o the cmpxchg loop)
