    adfs: remove the big kernel lock · 4688a066
    Arnd Bergmann authored
    According to Russell King, adfs was written to not require the big
    kernel lock, and all inode updates are done under adfs_dir_lock.
    All other metadata in adfs is read-only and does not require locking.
    The use of the BKL is the result of various pushdowns from the VFS
