I think 3.11 is a realistic target for all the code movearound, but
maybe not as part of the normal pull request for -rc1.  If we make sure
it's really moving code around and not changing it I think a sending a
second pull request to Linus saying this is just code movearounds we
wanted to do when the churn causes least problems with actual code work
he should be fine with it.

Just to chime in here, we have a lot of resources focused on testing these XFS updates both internally with our QA team and with a range of other RH partners.

I am confident we can shake out any integration concerns in time.

Thanks!

Ric
