This is a set of backported patches that fix the set of known problems in XFS
in 2.6.32. These patches are all upstream - most are in 2.6.33, though the last
couple are in 2.6.34-rc1. The majority of the fixes are for XFS inode cache
lookup and reclaim regressions that lead to oops or shutdowns, the others are
either correctness or deadlock fixes.
The series applies to a clean 188.8.131.52 stable tree, and has been repeatedly run
through the xfsqa suite over the last 24 hours without any problems arising.
Please consider this series for inclusion in the next 2.6.32-stable tree.
XFS ppl - can you take a once-over on the series to make sure I haven't
done anything stupid in backporting, and also check that there aren't other
fixes that I've missed that should be in 2.6.32.
