The problem is that commits

  a6d639da63ae fs: factor out a __generic_write_end helper


  806a1477b10a (xfs/iomap-4.19-merge) iomap: add inline data support

have been rebased in the xfs tree from a base of v4.18-rc1 to
v4.18-rc4, so that those patches now appear twice in linux-next where I
have merged the gfs2 tree and the xfs tree.  This has caused a few
conflicts today as there are more changes to the same files affected by
those commits in the xfs tree. to iomap_readpage_actor

What should have happened is that those commits should not have been
rebased, so either the xfs tree needs rebuilding to use the old
commits, or your tree needs to be rebuilt using the new commits from
the xfs tree.  This is why we do not like the rebasing of published
trees (especially when a subset of the tree is shared with other

Also, if you are going to merge (part of) another tree you need to make
sure that the other maintainer will not do a rebase of it (I assume
that this was probably talked about).
