Let's plan this a little better than "ASAP". We've already got a
full queue for .24 - I'm uncomfortable with pushing anything more
given the nature of the changes we've made in this cycle and we
really want some testing time on that code before the .24 merge
window opens. Given that we are at .23-rc6 already, it won't be long
before .24-rc1 merge window is open, so lets stop pushing large
changes into the tree until after the .24-rc1 merge is done.

IOWs, I consider stuff like Eric's spin lock clean to be .25 material
at this point, not .24, and we should only be taking bug fixes and small,
contained features (e.g. fallocate support) for .24. Everything else
can wait until .25....
