Subjectext4 write performance regression in 3.6-rc1
Ted,

I find ext4 write performance dropped by 3.3% on average in the
3.6-rc1 merge window. xfs and btrfs are fine.

Two machines are tested. The performance regression happens in the
lkp-nex04 machine, which is equipped with 12 SSD drives. lkp-st02 does
not see regression, which is equipped with HDD drives. I'll continue
to repeat the tests and report variations.

The below 3.6.0-rc1+ kernel is 3.6.0-rc1 plus the NULL deference fix.
