    v2 fixes the following issues:
    - Fix up the cookie usage in uncached_readdir()
    - Changelog fixups for the second patch
    - .releasepage should use kmap_atomic() so that it can be called
    from all direct reclaim contexts.
    - Ensure that .releasepage also clears Pg_uptodate
    - Set/clear the Pg_private flag to ensure .releasepage gets called when
    - Add a .invalidatepage to ensure truncate_inode_pages() works correctly
    - Ensure that the anonymous page that is generated by uncached_readdir()
    doesn't leak memory.

    Trond Myklebust (3):
    NFS: Ensure we use the correct cookie in nfs_readdir_xdr_filler
    NFS: lock the readdir page while it is in use
    NFS: Fix a memory leak in nfs_readdir
