    GFS2: Don't filter out I_FREEING inodes anymore · ff34245d

    This patch basically reverts a very old patch from 2008,
    , with the title
    "Alternate gfs2_iget to avoid looking up inodes being freed".
    The original patch was designed to avoid a deadlock caused by lock
    ordering with try_rgrp_unlink. The patch forced the function to not
    find inodes that were being removed by VFS. The problem is, that
    made it impossible for nodes to delete their own unlinked dinodes
    after a certain point in time, because the inode needed was not found
    by this filtering process. There is no longer a need for the patch,
    since function try_rgrp_unlink no longer locks the inode: All it does
    is queue the glock onto the delete work_queue, so there should be no
    more deadlock.
