[Cluster-devel] cluster/gfs-kernel/src/gfs ops_export.c ops_in ...



CVSROOT:	/cvs/cluster
Module name:	cluster
Branch: 	RHEL45
Changes by:	wcheng sourceware org	2007-06-08 16:12:38

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

Log message:
	Bugzilla 243146 (clone of bug #242720 for RHEL 4.5 z-stream):
	
	There is a race between GFS lookup code and inode cache reclaim logic that
	would create a window to allow GFS to corrupt its (GFS) inode cache. The
	occurrence is rare and only happens when gfs_inode_destroy() is invoked
	(mostly under memory pressure such that VM starts to free its inode cache
	entries). Depending on who gets the freed memory, the result can't be specified.
