Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] ocfs2: add nowait aio support

As you know, VFS layer has introduced non-block aio
flag IOCB_NOWAIT, which informs kernel to bail out
if an AIO request will block for reasons such as file
allocations, or a writeback triggered, or would block
while allocating requests while performing direct I/O.
Subsequent, pwritev2/preadv2 also can leverage this
part kernel code.
So far, ext4/xfs/btrfs have supported this feature,
I'd like to add the related code for ocfs2 file system.

Compare with v1, some changes are as below,
use osb pointer in ocfs2_try_rw_lock() function,
modify ocfs2_overwrite_io() function to make all error
value can be returned to the upper code,
move invoking ocfs2_overwrite_io() function from
ocfs2_file_write_iter() to ocfs2_prepare_inode_for_write(),
this change can combine acquiring the related locks.

Gang He (3):
  ocfs2: add ocfs2_try_rw_lock and ocfs2_try_inode_lock
  ocfs2: add ocfs2_overwrite_io function
  ocfs2: nowait aio support
