Updated aops patchset against 2.6.21-rc5.
Files/dirs are 2.6.21-rc5-new-aops*
Contains numerous fixes from Mark and myself -- I'd say the core code is
getting reasonably stable at this point.
New stuff: patches from Mark and Steve for the cluster filesystems.
(compile only) patches for NFS, XFS, FUSE, eCryptfs. OK, they're untested,
but I have tried to put some effort in, so if maintainers would kindly
take a look... ext3 still needs review and porting to ext4, which I hope
someone will do eventually (I presume ext3 is still maintained)... does NFS
have a lock_page vs lock_kernel deadlock in its commit_write? (if yes, this
is fixable with the new write aops).
I chose a various smattering of weird and wonderful filesystems to try
converting, and so far I can't see major problems.
A first cut at FAT and cont_prepare_write support. The FAT conversion is
actually tested and seems to work quite well for various truncates and
expands. Breaks reiserfs though, which might be a bit tricky to fix within
the generic cont infrastructure.
