    There's a lot of stuff that has happened in the 2.5.x series lately, and
    you can see the gory details in the ChangeLog files that accompany
    releases these days, but I thought I'd point out 2.5.14, since it has some
    interesting fundamental changes to how dirty state is maintained in the

    (The big changes were actually in 2.5.12, but 2.5.13 contained various
    minor fixes and tweaks, and 2.5.14 contains a number of fixes especially
    wrt truncate, so hopefully it's fairly _stable_ as of 2.5.14.)

    Credit goes to Andrew Morton, and not only does it clean up the code a
    lot, it also seems to perform a lot better in many circumstances.

    There's a lot of other stuff in the 2.5.x tree too, but few things are so
    fundamental. Please test (but also, please be careful - backups are always
    a good idea).
