    Linus Torvalds authored
    Pull third hunk of vfs changes from Al Viro:
     "This contains the ->direct_IO() changes from Omar + saner
      generic_write_checks() + dealing with fcntl()/{read,write}() races
      (mirroring O_APPEND/O_DIRECT into iocb->ki_flags and instead of
      repeatedly looking at ->f_flags, which can be changed by fcntl(2),
      check ->ki_flags - which cannot) + infrastructure bits for dhowells'
      d_inode annotations + Christophs switch of /dev/loop to
      vfs_iter_write()"
