Also, Eric, can you run this proof-of-concept test branch (on top of
the current XFS for-2.6.36 branch) and see if QEMU is happy with it?
It passes this test on my machine....

The following changes since commit d2ec2c790b3994bf0c4381cacc489b514705887c:

  xfs: clean up xfs_bmap_get_bp (2010-07-22 12:52:08 +1000)

are available in the git repository at:
  git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/dgc/xfsdev aio-unaligned

Dave Chinner (4):
      Merge branch 'master' into working
      Merge branch 'for-2.6.36' into working
      fs: get_blocks needs an unaligned mapping flag
      xfs: serialise unaligned direct IO into unwritten extents
