Description of problem:
From my original e-mail:
"Can we get this trivial patch into the next Red Hat kernel release 
please? It's been in -mm for over a while now and doesn't seem like it's 
going to cause any controversy. This would help OCFS2 development greatly."

Without the patch at the url posted above, OCFS2 will not work properly on RHEL4.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to use OCFS2 with redhat

Comment 2 Jason Baron 2005-06-21 21:40:11 UTC
ok, the symbol is 'generic_drop_inode'. I can read :)
