Remove BKL from remote_llseek v2
- Replace remote_llseek with generic_file_llseek_unlocked (to force compilation failures in all users) - Change all users to either use generic_file_llseek_unlocked directly or take the BKL around. I changed the file systems who don't use the BKL for anything (CIFS, GFS) to call it directly. NCPFS and SMBFS and NFS take the BKL, but explicitely in their own source now. I moved them all over in a single patch to avoid unbisectable sections. Open problem: 32bit kernels can corrupt fpos because its modification is not atomic, but they can do that anyways because there's other paths who modify it without BKL. Do we need a special lock for the pos/f_version = 0 checks? Trond says the NFS BKL is likely not needed, but keep it for now until his full audit. v2: Use generic_file_llseek_unlocked instead of remote_llseek_unlocked and factor duplicated code (suggested by hch) Cc: Trond.Myklebust@netapp.com Cc: swhiteho@redhat.com Cc: sfrench@samba.org Cc: vandrove@vc.cvut.cz Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@suse.de> Signed-off-by: Andi Kleen <ak@linux.intel.com> Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <corbet@lwn.net>
