[PATCH AUTOSEL 6.7 32/39] ceph: fix deadlock or deadcode of misusing dget()

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


From: Xiubo Li <xiubli@xxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit b493ad718b1f0357394d2cdecbf00a44a36fa085 ]

The lock order is incorrect between denty and its parent, we should
always make sure that the parent get the lock first.

But since this deadcode is never used and the parent dir will always
be set from the callers, let's just remove it.
