Should be safer to do the dentry move immediately after the rename
rather than later.

What sort of rename races? Is that a real/reproducible problem?

Looking at what "later" means, you moved d_move() before
cifs_put_tlink(tlink);
and
shrink_dcache_parent(new_dentry);
detach_mounts(new_dentry);

I suppose cifs_put_tlink() is not the issue.

It makes me wonder about shrink_dcache_parent()/detach_mounts() -
they happen for some fs before d_move() and for some fs after d_move()

I think it kind of makes sense to have them moved after dentry is
unhashed anyway? (that is after d_move()).

Thanks,
Amir.

Subject: [PATCH] cifs: do d_move in rename

It is safer to do the d_move closer to the rename to
avoid races.
