Re: [RFC] Unbork fs.h, 1 of 4

I share the opinion of a couple others, to use generic_ip and
generic_sbp. That's what they are there for.

May I suggest the course of action whereby you convert the code to use
ext2_sb(sb) and ext2_i(inode) first, without changing fs.h at all. That
lays the groundwork for arguing out the final solution, and the code is
much cleaner either way.

I have not seen anyone arguing -against- ext2_sb() and ext2_i()
cleanups... they seem to make the code obviously more clean.

After those cleanups go in, your further "unbork fs.h" patches will be
smaller and only show the core changes you are interested in.
