I'm sending the entire series of scalability patches in a single
patchbomb because I'm tired and it's too much like hard work to send
it out in multiple patchsets (i.e. I'm being lazy). Overall there
are relatively few changes:

- new patch for iolock lockdep annotations
- new patch for allocations under ilock

rcu inode freeing and lookup:
- reworked reclaim to use rcu read locking
- removed synchronise_rcu() from lookup failure
- cleaned up validity checks, added comments and rcu_read_lock_held

AIL locking
- fixed aild sleep to use TASK_INTERRUPTABLE

Log grant scaling
- made reserveq/writeq tracing just indicate if there are queued
- cleaned up some minor formatting nitpicks suggested by Christoph
- split xlog_space_left() into __xlog_space_left() for AIl tail
  pushing to work off a single tail lsn value.

I'm mainly concerned with getting reviews for the few remaining
patches that don't currently have reviewed-by tags. Christoph, I
think I've fixed all the things your last round of comments covered,
so there should be relatively little remaining to be fixed up.

The series is in the following git tree which is based on the
current OSS xfs tree. Alex, once I get the remaining reviews
complete I'll update the branch and send you a pull request.

The following changes since commit 489a150f6454e2cd93d9e0ee6d7c5a361844f62a:

  xfs: factor duplicate code in xfs_alloc_ag_vextent_near into a helper
