In that case I think we'll be able to get the buffer changes in more quickly if
they are rebased not to require the inode allocator patchset.  I think that Jan
is also going to repost his 'Fix overallocation in xfs_buf_allocate_memory()'
based upon Dave's suggestions.  It's best not to depend upon that either.  What
do you say, Dave?
