SubjectRe: [PATCH] staging: erofs: remove rcu_read_lock() in erofs_try_to_free_cached_page
From
Date
Hi Greg,

Could you consider take some time on these two patches for linux-5.1-rc1?
1) staging: erofs: fix race of initializing xattrs of a inode at the same time
2) staging: erofs: remove rcu_read_lock() in erofs_try_to_free_cached_page

It will be of great help, especially patch 1 (it could cause potential memleak
in the race condition without it).

If something (eg, resend these patches in a new patchset) is needed, I'm happy
to do that. :)

Thanks,
Gao Xiang
