[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 5 of 5]Bz #248176: GFS2: invalid metadata block - TRY 3



Okay, here is patch 5 again.  The difference between the patches that
applied and those that didn't seems to be that git-diff worked and my
normal diff didn't.  I used diff -pu to generate the "bad" patches,
which had always worked for me in the past, so I'm not sure why it
isn't now.  Perhaps someone can suggest additional parms to diff.
----------------------
This is patch 5 of 5 for bug #248176

Metadata corruption was occurring because page references weren't
being removed in all cases.  I previously added a function called
detach_bufdata, but I discovered there already WAS a function out
there to do the job.  It's called gfs2_meta_cache_flush.  So I added
a call to that to remove the page references.
Recently I had been thinking that this was entirely unnecessary, but
when I removed the code, the metadata corruption problem returned
immediately.
