[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 17/32] GFS2: Improve bug trap code in ->releasepage()



If the buffer is dirty or pinned, then as well as printing a
warning, we should also refuse to release the page in
question.

Currently this can occur if there is a race between mmap()ed
writers and O_DIRECT on the same file. With the addition of
->launder_page() in the future, we should be able to close
this gap.
