Apart from the fact this conflicts with my xfssyncd killing patchset
and xfs_sync.c no longer exists, it looks fine.
Can you rebase this on top of my patch series? Mostly it is simply
making your changes to xfs_icache.c rather than xfs_sync.c as that's
where all this inode cache radix tree walking code is now.....
