Maybe the better idea is to pull the xfs tree in the nfsd tree, but
that would require Dave sending an early pull request so that the
nfsd pull doesn't get delayed.

Or we just defer the pnfsd merge.  While I tried to get it in in time
for 3.20 all the delays during review mean we're really late no and should
punt it to 3.21.
