Subject: Re: [PATCH v2] iversion: make inode_cmp_iversion{+raw} return bool
 instead of s64

Ack. Should I expect this in a future pull request, or take it directly?

There's no hurry about this, since none of the existing users of that
function actually do anything but test the return value against zero,
and nobody saves it into anything but a "bool" (which has magical
casting properties and does not lose upper bits).
