I have a few things that I want to do to make syncs easier in the
- stop using the plain xfs.h include in userland, and use the same
includes as in kernel space. This might require some new stub
headers and magic #include_next games in userland, but should really
ease our life there.
- split files only partially shared between kernel and userspace and
logical boundaries so that they can be shared 1:1. My poster child
for that would be to split a xfs_busy_extent.c out of xfs_alloc.c.
But let's get this release out before starting major surgery.
