    Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs · d895cb1a
    Linus Torvalds authored
    Pull vfs pile (part one) from Al Viro:
     "Assorted stuff - cleaning namei.c up a bit, fixing ->d_name/->d_parent
      locking violations, etc.
    
      The most visible changes here are death of FS_REVAL_DOT (replaced with
      "has ->d_weak_revalidate()") and a new helper getting from struct file
      to inode.  Some bits of preparation to xattr method interface changes.
    
      Misc patches by various people sent this cycle *and* ocfs2 fixes from
      several cycles ago that should've been upstream right then.
    
      PS: the next vfs pile will be xattr stuff."
