Subject: [PATCH v1 1/9] ext4: do not mark superblock as dirty unnecessarily

From: Artem Bityutskiy <>

Commit a0375156ca1041574b5d47cc7e32f10b891151b0 cleaned up superblock dirtying
handling, but missed one place. This patch does what was intended: if we have
the journal, then we update the superblock through the journal rather than
doing this directly.
