Subject: [GIT PULL] ext4 update for 3.1

Hi Linus,

Here are my changes for 3.1 can be found here:

   git:// for_linus

However, there will be a merge conflict because the function
ext4_ind_direct_IO() got moved from inode.c to a new file indirect.c as
part of a cleanup effort.  So a patch hunk that attempted to be applied
to inode.c in upstream caused a merge conflict, and needs to be manually
applied to indirect.c.

My fixup of the merge conflict can be found here:

   git:// upstream-merge

Please pull from either for_linus or upstream-merge, at your

Many thanks!!

						- Ted
