Documentation/filesystems: remove out of date reference to BKL being held
Adrian McMenamin [Tue, 21 Apr 2009 01:38:28 +0000 (18:38 -0700)]
Documentation/filesystems/vfs.txt incorrectly states that the kernel is
locked during the call to statfs (Documentation/filesystems/Locking
correctly says it is not). This patch removes the offending sentence.

remove reference to BKL being held in statfs
