Folks, I have merged this into the xfs tree for the 4.1 merge
window. It is under the stable branch "fallocate-insert-range"
in the tree here:


an dis currently included in the for-next branch that is included in
the linux-next tree. I have not included the ext4 kernel support
patch in this branch (patch 3) because I have not seen any reviews
from ext4 developers for it.

Ted, if you want to include that patch in you ext4 tree, feel free
to base it on the above branch, or if you give your  sob or
reviewed-by ok I can pull it into my tree. I'll leave it up to you
to determine how you want to deal with this.
