Btrfs: avoid deadlocks from GFP_KERNEL allocations during btrfs_real_readdir
Btrfs has an optimization where it will preallocate dentries during readdir to fill in enough information to open the inode without an extra lookup. But, we're calling d_alloc, which is doing GFP_KERNEL allocations, and that leads to deadlocks because our readdir code has tree locks held. For now, disable this optimization. We'll fix the gfp mask in the next merge window. Signed-off-by: Chris Mason <chris.mason@oracle.com>
