    ocfs2: Re-order iput in ocfs2_drop_dentry_lock · 9f70968a
    Mark Fasheh authored
    Do this to avoid a theoretical (I haven't seen this in practice) race where
    the downconvert thread might drop the dentry lock, allowing a remote unlink
    to proceed before dropping the inode locks. This could bounce access to the
    orphan dir between nodes.
    There doesn't seem to be a need to do the same in ocfs2_dentry_iput() as
    that's never called for the last ref drop from the downconvert thread.
