I don't know if this introductory text is going to be saved anywhere
permanent, such as the merge commit (since git now has the ability to
have much more informative merge descriptions). But if it is going to
be preserved, it might be worth mentioning that if the filesystem uses
block_page_mkpage(), it will handled automatically for them since the
patch series does push the call to file_update_time(0 into
__block_page_mkpage().
