[NET]: Make use of ->private_data in sockfd_lookup
Benjamin LaHaise [Wed, 10 Aug 2005 21:16:04 +0000 (14:16 -0700)]
Please consider the patch below which makes use of file->private_data to
store the pointer to the socket, which avoids touching several unused
cachelines in the dentry and inode in sockfd_lookup.
