fsnotify: srcu to protect read side of inode and vfsmount locks
Currently reading the inode->i_fsnotify_marks or vfsmount->mnt_fsnotify_marks lists are protected by a spinlock on both the read and the write side. This patch protects the read side of those lists with a new single srcu. Signed-off-by: Eric Paris <eparis@redhat.com>
