[Cluster-devel] cluster/gfs-kernel/src/gfs ops_address.c ops_i ...



CVSROOT:	/cvs/cluster
Module name:	cluster
Changes by:	wcheng sourceware org	2006-10-15 06:32:06

Modified files:
	gfs-kernel/src/gfs: ops_address.c ops_inode.c 

Log message:
	Bugzilla 203170 - direct IO deadlock: We'll have the same deadlock as
	described in bugzilla 173912 without RHEL4 kernel DIO_CLUSTER_LOCKING
	flag. To work around this issue, the i_alloc_sem is dropped from GFS.
	We expect glock will be able to handle the local synchronization.
