Yes, I have seen your patches. I think that VFS + XFS patches for
FALLOC_FL_COLLAPSE_RANGE have got a fair amount of review from Dave.
So they are almost ready. I will post collapse range v5 patches after
fixing some minor comments tonight or tommorow.
If there will be no more comments for XFS patch, VFS + XFS patches can
go through to xfs tree by Dave.
I think that Ext4 collapse range could go at a later time.(Need your
reviewed-by tag)
If still there are comments for xfs patch, I will rebase on top of your patch.

Yes, There are 5 new xfstests cases in this patch-set. these will also
be posted with collapse range patch-set soon.

Thanks :)
