[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 03/24] GFS2: Something nonlinear this way comes!



For some reason GFS2 has been missing support for non-linear
mappings. This patch fixes that, and also avoids taking any
locks for mmap in the O_NOATIME case. In fact we don't actually need
to take the lock here at all - just doing file_accessed() would be
enough, but we have to take the lock eventually and this helps
it hit disk (and thus be seen by other nodes) faster.
