This is the series of XFS fixes from current mainline which is important
enough for 3.0-stable.  All but the first three would also be needed
for 3.1-stable, but given the limited resources I plan to concentrate
on 3.0-stable.  If anyone wants to take care for 3.1 by building a kernel
with the remaining patches and run QA on them you are more welcome to
help out with that tree.

Note that while the description of

        xfs: don't serialise direct IO reads on page cache checks

doesn't mention that is is a regression fix we later noticed that a
large part of the speedups wasn't in fact new, but fixed a performance
regression introduced in Linux 2.6.38 with commit:

        xfs: introduce xfs_rw_lock() helpers for locking the inode
