[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 05/19] GFS2: Fix inode allocation error path



If we have got far enough through the inode allocation code
path that an inode has already been allocated, then we must
call iput to dispose of it, if an error occurs during a
later part of the process. This will always be the final iput
since there will be no other references to the inode.

Unlike when the inode has been unlinked, its block state will
be GFS2_BLKST_INODE rather than GFS2_BLKST_UNLINKED so we need
to skip the test in ->evict_inode() for this one case in order
to ensure that it will be deallocated correctly. This patch adds
a new flag in order to ensure that this will happen correctly.
