Subject: Re: [PATCH -V2 5/5] ext4: Fix the race between read_inode_bitmap
	and ext4_new_inode

It's a lot easier to review patches if you explain why new functions
(such as ext4_claim_inode(), in this case) are required, and to add a
comment at the beginning of the new function explaining what it does,
what its return code it needs, whether it needs to be called with any
locks held, whether it exits with locks taken or released, etc.

Thanks,
