Subject[PATCH 2/2] Updated locking documentation for journal_t
Date
Some members of transaction_t are allowed to be read without
any lock being held if consistency doesn't matter.
Based on LockDoc's findings, we extended the locking
documentation of those members.
Each one of them is marked with a short comment:
"no lock for quick racy checks".
