[Cluster-devel] [GFS2] Don't hold page lock when starting transaction



For those of you following the bugzilla, this is the long awaited patch-6b. If you don't
know what that means, don't worry its not important, its just the final patch in the 
series.

Subject: [PATCH] [GFS2] Don't hold page lock when starting transaction

This is an addendum to the new AOPs work which moves the point
at which we take the page lock so that we don't get it until
the last possible moment. This resolves a conflict between
starting transactions and the page lock.
