This one was more of an RFC to let folks play with different meta data
layouts.  Should probably stay outside the tree for now.  The other

This one needs updating to be more in line with what we define FLEX_BG
to be in the kernel.  I thing I also encounter conflicts when pulling
from the git tree a while back, so the one in the mailing list will not
apply cleanly.

The last two are fine but its still missing documentation.  Skip this
