kill-the-BKL/reiserfs: provide a tool to lock only once the write lock
Frederic Weisbecker [Tue, 14 Apr 2009 03:34:23 +0000 (05:34 +0200)]
Sometimes we don't want to recursively hold the per superblock write
lock because we want to be sure it is actually released when we come
to sleep.

This patch introduces the necessary tools for that.

reiserfs_write_lock_once() does the same job than reiserfs_write_lock()
except that it won't try to acquire recursively the lock if the current
task already owns it. Also the lock_depth before the call of this function
is returned.

reiserfs_write_unlock_once() unlock only if reiserfs_write_lock_once()
returned a depth equal to -1, ie: only if it actually locked.
