    [PATCH] gfp_t: fs/* · 27496a8c
    Al Viro authored
     - ->releasepage() annotated (s/int/gfp_t), instances updated
     - missing gfp_t in fs/* added
     - fixed misannotation from the original sweep caught by bitwise checks:
       XFS used __nocast both for gfp_t and for flags used by XFS allocator.
       The latter left with unsigned int __nocast; we might want to add a
       different type for those but for now let's leave them alone.  That,
       BTW, is a case when __nocast use had been actively confusing - it had
       been used in the same code for two different and similar types, with
       no way to catch misuses.  Switch of gfp_t to bitwise had caught that
    One tricky bit is left alone to be dealt with later - mapping->flags is
    a mix of gfp_t and error indications.  Left alone for now.
