Errrr.... here's the patch to clean up the ensure_ops documentation and
rename the function:

--D

From: Brian Foster <bfoster@redhat.com>

Improve the documentation around xfs_buf_ensure_ops, which is the
function that is responsible for cleaning up the b_ops state of buffers
that go through xrep_findroot_block but don't match anything.  Rename
the function to xfs_buf_reverify.

[darrick: this started off as bfoster mods of a previous patch of mine,
but the renaming parts are now a separate patch.]

- * the buffer with /any/ btree type, the buffer remains in memory in DONE state
- * with no ops, and a subsequent read_buf call from elsewhere will not set the
- * ops.  This function helps us fix this situation.
