    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 ;-/
