Ok, let's put it into -next so it sees some testing.
So it's too late for v6.7. Seems we forgot about this series.
Sorry about that.


Applied to the vfs.casefold branch of the vfs/vfs.git tree.
Patches in the vfs.casefold branch should appear in linux-next soon.

Please report any outstanding bugs that were missed during review in a
new review to the original patch series allowing us to drop it.

It's encouraged to provide Acked-bys and Reviewed-bys even though the
patch has now been applied. If possible patch trailers will be updated.

Note that commit hashes shown below are subject to change due to rebase,
trailer updates or similar. If in doubt, please check the listed branch.

branch: vfs.casefold

[1/9] ecryptfs: Reject casefold directory inodes
[2/9] 9p: Split ->weak_revalidate from ->revalidate
[3/9] fs: Expose name under lookup to d_revalidate hooks
[5/9] libfs: Validate negative dentries in case-insensitive directories
[6/9] libfs: Chain encryption checks after case-insensitive revalidation
[7/9] libfs: Merge encrypted_ci_dentry_ops and ci_dentry_ops
[8/9] ext4: Enable negative dentries on case-insensitive lookup
[9/9] f2fs: Enable negative dentries on case-insensitive lookup
