Artem Bityutskiy - Feb. 7, 2012, 2:44 p.m.
From: Artem Bityutskiy <artem.bityutskiy@linux.intel.com>

This patch changes the 'i_nlink' counter handling in 'ubifs_unlink()',
'ubifs_rmdir()' and 'ubifs_rename()'. In these function  'i_nlink' may become 0,
and if 'ubifs_jnl_update()' failed, we would use 'inc_nlink()' to restore
the previous 'i_nlink' value, which is incorrect from the VFS point of view and
would cause a 'WARN_ON()' (see 'inc_nlink() implementation).

This patches saves the previous 'i_nlink' value in a local variable and uses it
at the error path instead of calling 'inc_nlink()'. We do this only for the
inodes where 'i_nlink' may potentially become zero.

This change has been requested by Al Viro <viro@ZenIV.linux.org.uk>.

Al, I assume this goes in via the UBIFS tree.
