Subject: - jbd-config_jbd_debug-cannot-create-proc-entry.patch removed from -mm tree


The patch titled
     jbd: config_jbd_debug cannot create /proc entry
has been removed from the -mm tree.  Its filename was
     jbd-config_jbd_debug-cannot-create-proc-entry.patch

This patch was dropped because it was merged into mainline or a subsystem tree

------------------------------------------------------
Subject: jbd: config_jbd_debug cannot create /proc entry
From: "Jose R. Santos" <jrs@...ibm.com>

The jbd-debug file used to be located in /proc/sys/fs/jbd-debug, but
create_proc_entry() does not do lookups on file names that are more that
one directory deep.  This causes the entry creation to fail and hence, no
proc file is created.

Instead of fixing this on procfs might as well move the jbd2-debug file to
debugfs which would be the preferred location for this kind of tunable. 
The new location is now /sys/kernel/debug/jbd/jbd-debug.
