jbd2_journal_stop: complete a transaction

NAME

jbd2_journal_stop - complete a transaction

SYNOPSIS

int jbd2_journal_stop(handle_t handle);

ARGUMENTS

handle

transaction to complete.

DESCRIPTION

All done for a particular handle.

There is not much action needed here. We just return any remaining buffer credits to the transaction and remove the handle. The only complication is that we need to start a commit operation if the filesystem is marked for synchronous update.

jbd2_journal_stop itself will not usually return an error, but it may do so in unusual circumstances. In particular, expect it to return -EIO if a jbd2_journal_abort has been executed since the transaction began.
