Subject: [GIT PULL] dtype handling cleanup for v4.21-rc1

  Hello Linus,

  could you please pull from

git:// dtype_for_v4.21-rc1

to get a patch to provide generic functions for dtype handling and use those
for ext2. Other filesystems (ext4, btrfs, ocfs2, ...) can then merge the
cleanup patches through their trees.

I've taken the generic functions patch through my tree since Al didn't respond
and it seems non-controversial enough. But I'm sending it separately from my
standard fs fixes batch to mark something unusual is going on (which is also
why I'm sending it so late in the merge window because I forgot about this
topic branch and found out only now).

Top of the tree is 9d6e1fe4e091. The full shortlog is:

Phillip Potter (2):
      fs: common implementation of file type
      ext2: use common file type conversion

The diffstat is
