reiserfs: don't lock root inode searching
Frederic Weisbecker [Tue, 10 Jan 2012 23:11:11 +0000 (15:11 -0800)]
Nothing requires that we lock the filesystem until the root inode is
provided.

Also iget5_locked() triggers a warning because we are holding the
filesystem lock while allocating the inode, which result in a lockdep
suspicion that we have a lock inversion against the reclaim path:

The deadlock shouldn't happen since we are doing that allocation in the
mount path, the filesystem is not available for any reclaim.  Still the
warning is annoying.

To solve this, acquire the lock later only where we need it, right before
calling reiserfs_read_locked_inode() that wants to lock to walk the tree.
