This patch has one checkpatch error, could you fix that? .. Also your
whole series has several very long lines over 80 characters , you might
want to consider trimming those down to 80 or less.. If you run these
patches through checkpatch you should output like the following denoting
the issues,

ERROR: "(foo*)" should be "(foo *)"
#381: FILE: include/linux/fanotify.h:84:
+                                  (struct fanotify_event_metadata*)(((char *)(meta)) + \
