#define _LINUX_FS_H

 * This file has definitions for some important file table
 * structures etc.

#include <linux/limits.h>

 * It's silly to have NR_OPEN bigger than NR_FILE, but you can change
 * the file limit at runtime and only root can increase the per-process
 * nr_file rlimit, so it's safe to set up a ridiculously high absolute
 * upper limit on files-per-process.
 * Some programs (notably those using select()) may have to be 
 * recompiled to take full advantage of the new limits..

 * Exception: MS_RDONLY is always applied to the entire file system.
 * Unfortunately, it is possible to change a filesystems flags with it mounted
 * with files in use.  This means that all of the inodes will not have their
 * i_flags updated.  Hence, i_flags no longer inherit the superblock mount
 * flags, so these have to be checked separately. -- rmk@arm.uk.linux.org

 * Inode state bits.  Protected by inode_lock.
 * Three bits determine the dirty state of the inode, I_DIRTY_SYNC,
 * Four bits define the lifetime of an inode.  Initially, inodes are I_NEW,
 * until that flag is cleared.  I_WILL_FREE, I_FREEING and I_CLEAR are set at
 * various stages of removing an inode.
 * Two bits are used for locking and completion notification, I_LOCK and I_SYNC.
 * I_DIRTY_SYNC         Inode itself is dirty.
 * I_DIRTY_DATASYNC     Data-related inode changes pending
 * I_DIRTY_PAGES  Inode has dirty pages.  Inode itself may be clean.
 * I_NEW          get_new_inode() sets i_state to I_LOCK|I_NEW.  Both
 *                are cleared by unlock_new_inode(), called from iget().
 * I_WILL_FREE          Must be set when calling write_inode_now() if i_count
 *                is zero.  I_FREEING must be set when I_WILL_FREE is
 *                cleared.
 * I_FREEING            Set when inode is about to be freed but still has dirty
 *                pages or buffers attached or the inode itself is still
 *                dirty.
 * I_CLEAR        Set by clear_inode().  In this state the inode is clean
 *                and can be destroyed.
 *                Inodes that are I_WILL_FREE, I_FREEING or I_CLEAR are
 *                prohibited for many purposes.  iget() must wait for
 *                the inode to be completely released, then create it
 *                anew.  Other functions will just ignore such inodes,
 *                if appropriate.  I_LOCK is used for waiting.
 * I_LOCK         Serves as both a mutex and completion notification.
 *                New inodes set I_LOCK.  If two processes both create
 *                the same inode, one of them will release its inode and
 *                wait for I_LOCK to be released before returning.
 *                Inodes in I_WILL_FREE, I_FREEING or I_CLEAR state can
 *                also cause waiting on I_LOCK, without I_LOCK actually
 *                being set.  find_inode() uses this to prevent returning
 *                nearly-dead inodes.
 * I_SYNC         Similar to I_LOCK, but limited in scope to writeback
 *                of inode dirty data.  Having a seperate lock for this
 *                purpose reduces latency and prevents some filesystem-
 *                specific deadlocks.
 * Q: Why does I_DIRTY_DATASYNC exist?  It appears as if it could be replaced
 * Q: What is the difference between I_WILL_FREE and I_FREEING?
 * Q: igrab() only checks on (I_FREEING|I_WILL_FREE).  Should it also check on
 *    I_CLEAR?  If not, why?
