Subject: [git pull] vfs.git pile 1

	Stuff in there:
1) acct.c fixes and general rework of mnt_pin mechanism.  That allows to go for
delayed-mntput stuff, which will permit mntput() on deep stack without worrying
about stack overflows - fs shutdown will happen on shallow stack.  IOW, we
can do Eric's umount-on-rmdir series without introducing tons of stack
overflows on new mntput() call chains it introduces.
2) Bruce's d_splice_alias() patches
3) more Miklos' rename() stuff.
4) a couple of regression fixes (stable fodder, in the end of branch)
and a fix for API idiocy in iov_iter.c.

There definitely will be another pile, maybe even two.  I'd like to
get Eric's series in this time, but even if we miss it, it'll go right
in the beginning of for-next in the next cycle - the tricky part of
prereqs is in this pile.

Please, pull from the usual place:

There are two conflicts - one in fs/namespace.c (hlist_add_after_rcu()
got moved into helper function in this branch and replaced with
hlist_add_behind_rcu() in mainline) and another in kernel/acct.c - there
it's whitespace noise from "kernel/acct.c: fix coding style warnings and errors"
which got rebased into this branch *and* sent in original form by akpm.
Resolution is to pick kernel/acct.c from this branch.  Alternatively, I
can drop that commit from the branch, but that will mean a late rebase
or having even messier conflict in kernel/acct.c, with the same contents
of that file after conflict resolution.  Up to you, but I think it's less
PITA to leave it as is...  See vfs.git#proposed-merge for my take on the
