Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.4 18/64] ext4: make dioread_nolock the default
Date
From: Theodore Ts'o <tytso@mit.edu>

[ Upstream commit 244adf6426ee31a83f397b700d964cff12a247d3 ]

This fixes the direct I/O versus writeback race which can reveal stale
data, and it improves the tail latency of commits on slow devices.
