Subject: [PATCH 0/7] ext4 fast-commit fixes

From: Eric Biggers <

This series fixes several bugs in the fast-commit feature.

Patch 6 may be the most controversial patch of this series, since it
would make old kernels unable to replay fast-commit journals created by
new kernels.  I'd appreciate any thoughts on whether that's okay.  I can
drop that patch if needed.

I've tested that this series doesn't introduce any regressions with
'gce-xfstests -c ext4/fast_commit -g auto'.  Note that ext4/039,
ext4/053, and generic/475 fail both before and after.

Eric Biggers (7):
  ext4: disable fast-commit of encrypted dir operations
  ext4: don't set up encryption key during jbd2 transaction
  ext4: fix leaking uninitialized memory in fast-commit journal
  ext4: add missing validation of fast-commit record lengths
  ext4: fix unaligned memory access in ext4_fc_reserve_space()
  ext4: fix off-by-one errors in fast-commit block filling
  ext4: simplify fast-commit CRC calculation
