Amir G. - March 24, 2011, 4:58 p.m.
From: Amir Goldstein <amir73il@users.sf.net>

The old imlementation used to take grp->alloc_sem and set the
GROUP_NEED_INIT flag, so that the buddy cache would be reloaded.

The new implementation updates the buddy cache by freeing the added
blocks and making them available for use, so there is no need to
reload the buddy cache and there is no need to take grp->alloc_sem.
