Subject: [GIT PULL] Please pull NFS client changes

Hi Linus,

Apologies for the relative lateness of this pull request, however the
commits fix some issues with the NFS read/write code updates in 3.16-rc1
that can cause serious Oopsing when using small r/wsize. The delay was
mainly due to extra testing to make sure that the fixes behave

The following changes since commit 66b068604903849c5dee3842eb72564064c64c72:

  NFSv4: test SECINFO RPC_AUTH_GSS pseudoflavors for support (2014-06-24 18:46:58 -0400)

are available in the git repository at:

  NFS: Don't reset pg_moreio in __nfs_pageio_add_request (2014-07-13 15:18:44 -0400)

NFS client fixes for Linux 3.16

Highlights include;
- Stable fix for an NFSv3 posix ACL regression
- Multiple fixes for regressions to the NFS generic read/write code
  - Fix page splitting bugs that come into play when a small rsize/wsize
    read/write needs to be sent again (due to error conditions or page
  - Fix nfs_wb_page_cancel, which is called by the "invalidatepage" method
- Fix 2 compile warnings about unused variables.
- Fix a performance issue affecting unstable writes.
