There is a new version of this work (Eric's patches and the base
libxfs restructure) here:

        git://oss.sgi.com/xfs/xfs.git xfs-libxfs-restructure

It's based on 3.15 with the current for-next branch merged into it
and then the changes done over the top, so it's about as up-to-date
as it can be. Comments welcome...
