Which part of all wasn't clear? Have you looked at the prefixes for
most functions in the various other big filesystems?

With that I mean that you should:

1) remove is_inode_fast_symlink and just opencode it in the few places
using it
2) remove the check in this place entirely as it is not needed
3) remove the comment quoted above as it is more confusing than not
having the comment

With that code it makes sense. In this paticular patch it does not.
So please add it only when actually needed.
