    [PATCH] export generic_drop_inode() to modules · cb2c0233

    OCFS2 wants to mark an inode which has been orphaned by another node so
    that during final iput it takes the correct path through the VFS and can
    pass through the OCFS2 delete_inode callback.  Since i_nlink can get out of
    date with other nodes, the best way I see to accomplish this is by clearing
    i_nlink on those inodes at drop_inode time.  Other than this small amount
    of work, nothing different needs to happen, so I think it would be cleanest
    to be able to just call generic_drop_inode at the end of the OCFS2
    drop_inode callback.
