Subject: - forbid-user-to-change-file-flags-on-quota-files.patch removed from -mm tree


The patch titled
     Forbid user to change file flags on quota files
has been removed from the -mm tree.  Its filename was
     forbid-user-to-change-file-flags-on-quota-files.patch

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

------------------------------------------------------
Subject: Forbid user to change file flags on quota files
From: Jan Kara <jack@...e.cz>

Forbid user from changing file flags on quota files.  User has no bussiness
in playing with these flags when quota is on.  Furthermore there is a
remote possibility of deadlock due to a lock inversion between quota file's
i_mutex and transaction's start (i_mutex for quota file is locked only when
trasaction is started in quota operations) in ext3 and ext4.
