Subject: [RFCv2 0/8] ext2: DIO to use iomap

Please find the series which moves ext2 direct-io to use modern iomap interface.

Here are some more details -
1. Patch-1: Fixes a kernel bug_on problem with ext2 dax code (found during code
   review and testing).
2. Patch-2: Adds a __generic_file_fsync_nolock implementation as we had
3. Patch-3 & Patch-4: Moves ext4 nojournal and ext2 to use _nolock method.
4. Patch-5: This is the main patch which moves ext2 direct-io to use iomap.
   (more details can be found in the patch)
5. Patch-6: Kills IOMAP_DIO_NOSYNC flag as it is not in use by any filesystem.
6. Patch-7: adds IOCB_STRINGS macro for use in trace events for better trace
   output of iocb flags.
7. Patch-8: Add ext2 trace point for DIO.

This passes ext2 "auto" group testing for fstests. There were no new failures
with this patches.

Ritesh Harjani (IBM) (8):
  ext2/dax: Fix ext2_setsize when len is page aligned
  libfs: Add __generic_file_fsync_nolock implementation
  ext4: Use __generic_file_fsync_nolock implementation
  ext2: Use __generic_file_fsync_nolock implementation
  ext2: Move direct-io to use iomap
  iomap: Remove IOMAP_DIO_NOSYNC unused dio flag
  fs.h: Add IOCB_STRINGS for use in trace points
  ext2: Add direct-io trace points
