[PATCH 0/2] minor fd cleanup

From: Mateusz Guzik
Date: Tue Oct 03 2017 - 06:58:24 EST

The first patch is a super minor nit and I'm fine with it being ignored.

Second patch is imho of actual value.

fd_install has an avoidable requirement to be called in a sleepable context.
It matters e.g. in rhel7 to where the patch was recently backported and the
new requirement could not be enforced.

I don't see any benefits from sleeping over locking and not sleeping makes
the function slightly nicer.

Mateusz Guzik (2):
vfs: stop clearing close on exec when closing a fd
vfs: grab the lock instead of blocking in __fd_install during resizing
