Hi Ben,

This is my current kernel bug fix patch series. I've updated it
against a current xfsdev tree, and contains all the fixes mentioned
in the "fixes for 3.10-rc2 (updated)" thread. The first 7 patches
are patches from that series. The last 4 are new patches.

The first new patch stops CRC enabled filesystems from spamming the
log. It currently emits an "Experimental" warning ever time the
superblock is written, which is typically every 30s.

The second path ("rework remote attr CRCs") is the changes I
mentioned in the "fixes for 3.10-rc2 (updated)" thread. The code is
far more robust as a result of these changes, and I think we really
need to change the format as done in this patch. Once we have
decided on the way forward, I'll port this to userspace.

The third patch fixes a remote symlink problem - I didn't hit this
until I'd redone the remote attr CRCs and the 1k block size
filesystem testing made it passed the attribute tests it was failing

Finally, the last patch is another on-disk format change - one that
removes the 25 entry limit on ACLs. It doesn't invalidate anything
that is already on disk, just allows ACLs on v5 superblock
filesystems to store more than 25 ACLs in an xattr. In fact, it
allows (65536 - 4) / 12 = 5461 entries to be stored in a single
ACL, so I don't see anyone running out on v5 superblocks....

Thoughts, comments?
