I can't see why we need this at the moment... what other interface is
there aside from the ioctl() for setting these flags?

Why do you call gfs2_get_inode_flags() here? There is no reason that the
gfs2 flags will not match the vfs inode flags at this point that I can
see (its a bug if they don't match). It is not valid to change the flags
while only holding a read lock and when outside of a transaction anyway.

Please use *ip for struct gfs2_inode and *inode for struct inode in
common with the rest of the code as it helps avoid confusion,
