xfs: tell lockdep about parent iolock usage in filestreams
The filestreams code may take the iolock on the parent inode while holding it on a child. This is the only place in XFS where we take both the child and parent iolock, so just telling lockdep about it is enough. The lock flag required for that was already added as part of the ilock lockdep annotations and unused so far. Signed-off-by: Christoph Hellwig <hch@lst.de> Signed-off-by: Alex Elder <aelder@sgi.com>
