Yongqiang Yang - July 18, 2011, 2:52 a.m.
Before this patch, parallel resizers are allowed and protected by a mutex lock,
actually, there is no need to support parallel resizer, so this patch prevents
parallel resizers by atmoic bit ops, like lock_page() and unlock_page() do.

To do this, the patch removed the mutex lock s_resize_lock from struct ext4_sb_info
and added a unsigned long field named s_resize_flags which inidicates if there is
a resizer.
