The dev branch is the set of patches that are planned to go to Linus
during the next merge window, so if we drop it from the merge window,
I would drop it from the dev branch and put it in the "unstable"
portion of the patch series.

It would be a shame to drop it since this provides the SEEK_HOLE
capability, though.  Can you say more about which change is not minor?
The change to fix the bigalloc bug?   Or the whole patch series?
