The patch titled
     filesystem freeze: implement generic freeze feature
has been added to the -mm tree.  Its filename is
     filesystem-freeze-implement-generic-freeze-feature.patch

   a) Consider who else should be cc'ed
   b) Prefer to cc a suitable mailing list as well
   c) Ideally: find the original patch on the mailing list and do a
      reply-to-all to that, adding suitable additional cc's

*** Remember to use Documentation/SubmitChecklist when testing your code ***

See http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/stuff/added-to-mm.txt to find
out what to do about this

------------------------------------------------------
Subject: filesystem freeze: implement generic freeze feature
From: Takashi Sato <t-sato@yk.jp.nec.com>

The ioctls for the generic freeze feature are below.
o Freeze the filesystem
  int ioctl(int fd, int FIFREEZE, arg)
    fd: The file descriptor of the mountpoint
    FIFREEZE: request code for the freeze
    arg: Ignored
    Return value: 0 if the operation succeeds. Otherwise, -1

o Unfreeze the filesystem
  int ioctl(int fd, int FITHAW, arg)
    fd: The file descriptor of the mountpoint
    FITHAW: request code for unfreeze
    arg: Ignored
    Return value: 0 if the operation succeeds. Otherwise, -1
    Error number: If the filesystem has already been unfrozen,
                  errno is set to EINVAL.
