Given that we need to do a wholesale resync of libxfs to the kernel
code, I'm not sure it makes sense to do little bits out of order.
it just makes syncing all the other prior changes harder because it
causes patch conflicts...

I'm planning that this is the first thing that we need to do
after the 3.2.0 release before anything else....

Cheers,

Dave.
