Subject: [GIT PULL -mm] 0/8 Unionfs updates/cleanups/fixes

The following is a series of patches related to Unionfs.  The main change
here is that we dropped ->sync_page and rewritten ->writepage.

These patches were tested (where appropriate) on Linus's 2.6.24 latest code
(as of v2.6.24-rc1-521-g54866f0), as well as the backports to
2.6.{23,22,21,20,19,18,9} on ext2/3/4, xfs, reiserfs, nfs2/3/4, jffs2,
ramfs, tmpfs, cramfs, and squashfs (where available).  See to download backported unionfs code.

Please pull from the 'master' branch of

to receive the following:

      Unionfs: delete whiteouts in sticky directories
      Unionfs: cleanup permission checking code
      Unionfs: update usage.txt documentation
      Unionfs: mmap updates
      Unionfs: avoid a deadlock during branch-management on a pivot_root'ed union
      Unionfs: don't bother validating inode if it has no lower branches
      Unionfs: don't printk an error if it's due to common copyup
      Unionfs/VFS: no need to export 2 symbols in security/security.c
