It's getting near time for the big bcachefs announcement :)

Also, stable pages - what's been going on there? Last I heard you were talking
about using the page migration code to do COW, did anything come of that? I just
added data checksumming/compression to bcachefs, so that's been fresh on my
mind.

Also, there's probably always going to be situations where we're reading or
writing to pages user space can stomp on (dio) - IMO we need to add a bio flag
to annotate this - "if you need this to be stable you have to bounce it".
Otherwise either filesystems/block drivers are going to be stuck bouncing
everything, or it'll just (continue to be) buggy.
