Oh, btw, when doing this, please add the

        From: Christoph Hellwig <hch@xxxxxx>

at the top of the email (and if you re-post the one-liner summary 
description, prepend it with "Subject: ", so that when I apply it as an 
email, the "Fix barrier fail detection in XFS" doesn't end up being 
repeated twice - once from the real email subject line, and once as the 
first normal line of the email).

I did it by hand, so you don't need to re-send, but just for future 
reference, for when I don't happen to notice (and so that I don't have to 
do it myself when I _do_ notice)
