[PATCH 04/24] GFS2: Clean up releasepage

From: Steven Whitehouse
Date: Mon Jan 20 2014 - 07:30:22 EST

For historical reasons, we drop and retake the log lock in ->releasepage()
however, since there is no reason why we cannot hold the log lock over
the whole function, this allows some simplification. In particular,
pinning a buffer is only ever done under the log lock, so it is possible
here to remove the test for pinned buffers in the second loop, since it
is impossible for that to happen (it is also tested in the first loop).

As a result, two tests made later in the second loop become constants
and can also be reduced to the only possible branch. So the net result
is to remove various bits of unreachable code and make this more
