[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 38/48] [GFS2] re-support special inode



From: Denis Cheng <crquan gmail com>

a previous commit removed call to
init_special_inode from inode lookuping, this cause problems as:

 # mknod /mnt/gfs2/dev/null c 1 3
 # cat /mnt/gfs2/dev/null
 cat: /mnt/gfs2/dev/null: Invalid argument

without special inode, GFS2 cannot support char device file,
block device file, fifo pipe, and socket file, lose many important
features as a common file system.

this one line patch re add special inode support.
