fs: block_dump missing dentry locking
Nick Piggin [Thu, 28 May 2009 07:01:15 +0000 (09:01 +0200)]
I think the block_dump output in __mark_inode_dirty is missing dentry locking.
Surely the i_dentry list can change any time, so we may not even *get* a
dentry there. If we do get one by chance, then it would appear to be able to
go away or get renamed at any time...
