Subject: Re: [PATCH] ext4: call fallocate may cause process to hang when using
 fast commit

Once the patch series "ext4 fast commit API cleanup" gets merged in
(https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/project/linux-ext4/list/?series=277672),
this patch won't be required anymore. So, I'll undo my review in favor
of merging the API cleanup patch series first.
