Hi Ted, is there any chance for this stuff to hit 3.6?

Basically I have 3 pending file-systems:
1. ext4 (these patches)
2. sysv - trivial, I hope Andrew would pick them.
3. ufs - should be straight-forward to change the same way I changed
hfs. I'll send patches soon. I hope Andrew would pick them as well.

Everything else - either in upstream or in -mm or in sub-system trees.

After this, I can kill sync_supers and have a chance that Linus would
accept the patches at 3.6-rc1, and end up with sync_super-less 3.6.

Best Regards,
Artem Bityutskiy
