[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 18/32] GFS2: Double check link count under glock



To avoid any possible races relating to the link count, we need to
recheck it under the inode's glock in all cases where it matters.
Also to ensure we never get any nasty surprises, this patch also
ensures that once the link count has hit zero it can never be
elevated by rereading in data from disk.

The only place we cannot provide a proper solution is in rename
in the case where we are removing a target inode and we discover
that the target inode has been already unlinked on another node.
The race window is very small, and we return EAGAIN in this case
to indicate what has happened. The proper solution would be to move
the lookup parts of rename from the vfs into library calls which
the fs could call directly, but that is potentially a very big job
and this fix should cover most cases for now.
