It looks to me like you may not have done much with the third
patch since I first reviewed it.  I'm not going to spend
as much time on it this time around, but I will try to
condense my original response into a more useful form
than the first time.

Please consider my suggestions below.  But even if you
don't address everything I'm OK with it, provided we
ensure we do as much test coverage as possible.

1) Please verify that the updated user space files
   match an up-to-date version of the kernel headers.
2) Many of the files become identical to their kernel
   counterparts with this update.  Can you create a
   script that verifies that it's still the case?
   That will also serve the purpose of documenting
   which files are identical now.
3) Why are you dropping the use of the symbols
  favor of just using 1 and 2?  (I guess I'm OK with
  it, but wanted to call it out anyway.)

A few things on specific files follow.  I've dropped
a few of the things I commented on the first time around.

This file looks good.  It is now nearly identical to the
kernel version, with these exceptions:
- This version includes the definition of bstat_get_projid().
  It's used once, but it should be deleted and the one use
  should be converted to use xfs_get_projid() if that can
  be arranged.
- XFS_IOC_FREEZE and XFS_IOC_THAW are still defined in
  this version.  The code that uses it here could possibly
  be converted to use the Linux generic FIFREEZE and FITHAW

Here is how this file differs from the kernel:
- Missing "xfs: add lockdep annotations for the rt inodes"
- And there are a few lines where prototypes differ (struct
  versus typedef usage).

Here is how this file differs from the kernel:
- The perag_get/put function declarations sit in different
  parts of the file.

With the exception of this, this function is identical to the
kernel version.  I don't know why there's this difference.
