I agree with christoph - the kernel side intptr/uintptr stuff that
Jan did needs to go into the kernel first, and then brought to
libxfs via a kernel code sync.  A kernel code resync needs to be
done immediately after the xfsprogs release so that usrspace is
using the same base code for the CRC work, so splitting them to
before/after the relases makes sense IMO....
