Unfortunately this patchset got ignored for 5.9.

Ted, will you have any interest in taking this patchset for 5.10?  Or should
Jaegeuk just take patches 1-3 via the f2fs tree?

The fscrypt tree is also an option, but I feel it's not really appropriate since
this patchset is just a refactoring of the existing casefolding support.

More reviews on patches 1-2 would be appreciated too.  So far just Gabriel and I
have reviewed them.  I was hoping that other people would review them too.
