     "The big thing in this pile is Eric's unmount-on-rmdir series; we
      finally have everything we need for that.  The final piece of prereqs
      is delayed mntput() - now filesystem shutdown always happens on
      shallow stack.
      Other than that, we have several new primitives for iov_iter (Matt
      Wilcox, culled from his XIP-related series) pushing the conversion to
      ->read_iter()/ ->write_iter() a bit more, a bunch of fs/dcache.c
      cleanups and fixes (including the external name refcounting, which
      gives consistent behaviour of d_move() wrt procfs symlinks for long
      and short names alike) and assorted cleanups and fixes all over the
      This is just the first pile; there's a lot of stuff from various
      people that ought to go in this window.  Starting with
      unionmount/overlayfs mess...  ;-/"
