Hi Ted,

there is no VFS change, MM is probably what you've had in mind ? So
the only reason why there are xfs, mm and tmpfs changes is that I am
changing truncate_partial_page() and a small side effect is changed
calling conventions.

We can push patches 3, 4, 5 and 6 through the mm tree. But we'll
have to make sure that it will land before ext4 changes since I am
using the new truncate_partial_page() behaviour in ext4. Will that
be possible ?

Hugh ?
