Subject: [PATCH 0/3] Three VFS patch resends

 these three patches are all completely separate, but are
 all related to the VFS.  I've posted them all previously
 but with, as yet, no response (except an ack from Paul McKenney
 for the RCU one).  One was, admitted, posted early last year...

 I would appreciate review and, hopefully, acceptance.



NeilBrown (3):
      VFS: use synchronize_rcu_expedited() in namespace_unlock()
      Improve fairness when locking the per-superblock s_anon list
      VFS: close race between getcwd() and d_move()
