Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs
Pull vfs updates from Al Viro: "The first vfs pile, with deep apologies for being very late in this window. Assorted cleanups and fixes, plus a large preparatory part of iov_iter work. There's a lot more of that, but it'll probably go into the next merge window - it *does* shape up nicely, removes a lot of boilerplate, gets rid of locking inconsistencie between aio_write and splice_write and I hope to get Kent's direct-io rewrite merged into the same queue, but some of the stuff after this point is having (mostly trivial) conflicts with the things already merged into mainline and with some I want more testing. This one passes LTP and xfstests without regressions, in addition to usual beating. BTW, readahead02 in ltp syscalls testsuite has started giving failures since "mm/readahead.c: fix readahead failure for memoryless NUMA nodes and limit readahead pages" - might be a false positive, might be a real regression..." * 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs: (63 commits) missing bits of "splice: fix racy pipe->buffers uses" cifs: fix the race in cifs_writev() ceph_sync_{,direct_}write: fix an oops on ceph_osdc_new_request() failure kill generic_file_buffered_write() ocfs2_file_aio_write(): switch to generic_perform_write() ceph_aio_write(): switch to generic_perform_write() xfs_file_buffered_aio_write(): switch to generic_perform_write() export generic_perform_write(), start getting rid of generic_file_buffer_write() generic_file_direct_write(): get rid of ppos argument btrfs_file_aio_write(): get rid of ppos kill the 5th argument of generic_file_buffered_write() kill the 4th argument of __generic_file_aio_write() lustre: don't open-code kernel_recvmsg() ocfs2: don't open-code kernel_recvmsg() drbd: don't open-code kernel_recvmsg() constify blk_rq_map_user_iov() and friends lustre: switch to kernel_sendmsg() ocfs2: don't open-code kernel_sendmsg() take iov_iter stuff to mm/iov_iter.c process_vm_access: tidy up a bit ...
