RE: Fix unlock_buffer() to work the same way as bit_unlock()

From: Christoph Lameter <clameter_at_sgi.com>
Date: 2006-03-30 10:33:06
Hmmm... Maybe we therefore need to add a mode to each bit operation in 
the kernel?

With that we can also get rid of the __* version of bitops.

Possible modes are

NON_ATOMIC 	Do not perform any atomic ops at all.

ATOMIC		Atomic but unordered

ACQUIRE		Atomic with acquire semantics (or lock semantics)

RELEASE 	Atomic with release semantics (or unlock semantics)

FENCE		Atomic with full fence.

This would require another bitops overhaul.

Maybe we can preserve the existing code with bitops like __* mapped to 
*(..., NON_ATOMIC) and * mapped to *(..., FENCE) and the gradually fix the 
rest of the kernel.

Nick?
