NAME

       ilookup - search for an inode in the inode cache

SYNOPSIS

       struct inode * ilookup  (struct super_block * sb, unsigned long ino);

ARGUMENTS

       sb     super block of file system to search

       ino    inode number to search for

DESCRIPTION

        ilookup  uses  ifind_fast  to  search  for  the inode ino in the inode
       cache. This is for file systems where the inode  number  is  sufficient
       for unique identification of an inode.

       If the inode is in the cache, the inode is returned with an incremented
       reference count.

       Otherwise NULL is returned.
