[PATCH 4.19 006/113] kernfs: fix barrier usage in __kernfs_new_node()




From: Andrea Parri <andrea.parri@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 998267900cee901c5d1dfa029a6304d00acbc29f upstream.

smp_mb__before_atomic() can not be applied to atomic_set().  Remove the
barrier and rely on RELEASE synchronization.

Fixes: ba16b2846a8c6 ("kernfs: add an API to get kernfs node from inode number")
