Subject[PATCH v2 3/8] fs: Move call_rcu() to call_rcu_lazy() in some paths
Date
This is required to prevent callbacks triggering RCU machinery too
quickly and too often, which adds more power to the system.

When testing, we found that these paths were invoked often when the
system is not doing anything (screen is ON but otherwise idle).
