Re: [Cluster-devel] [GFS2 PATCH] GFS2: eliminate i_generation from memory

Are you saying that nfs manipulates gfs2's i_generation value in
the incore gfs2_inode structure?  If so, that scares me; there
should be an interface to do that.  If not, it must be for some
future development, because we don't reference the value anywhere.
