Umm... It's a lot of misc stuff, unfortunately. The obvious groups:
* Miklos' atomic_open series; kills the damn abuse of ->d_revalidate()
by NFS, which was the major stumbling block for all work in that area.
* ripping security_file_mmap() and dealing with deadlocks in the
area; sanitizing the neighborhood of vm_mmap()/vm_munmap() in general.
* ->encode_fh() switched to saner API; insane fake dentry in
mm/cleancache.c gone.
* assorted annotations in fs (endianness, __user)
* parts of Artem's ->s_dirty work (jff2 and reiserfs parts)
* ->update_time() work from Josef.
* other bits and pieces all over the place.

Normally it would've been in two or three pull requests, but signal.git
stuff had eaten a lot of time during this cycle ;-/
