[GFS2] don't call permission()
GFS2 calls permission() to verify permissions after locks on the files have been taken. For this it's sufficient to call gfs2_permission() instead. This results in the following changes: - IS_RDONLY() check is not performed - IS_IMMUTABLE() check is not performed - devcgroup_inode_permission() is not called - security_inode_permission() is not called IS_RDONLY() should be unnecessary anyway, as the per-mount read-only flag should provide protection against read-only remounts during operations. do_gfs2_set_flags() has been fixed to perform mnt_want_write()/mnt_drop_write() to protect against remounting read-only. IS_IMMUTABLE has been added to gfs2_permission() Repeating the security checks seems to be pointless, as they don't normally change, and if they do, it's independent of the filesystem state.
