Please excuse my impatience, but do you plan to send these out to
Linus for 4.11?

If not, Miklos, could possibly ask Linus to pull overlayfs-next, which have been
soaking in linux-next for a while now.

overlayfs-next contains only my 4 VFS patches above, which are not that
controversial IMO.

It'd be nice to get rid of the "big copy up lock" for 4.11.
