We have had 11 of 13 pieces of the 'sync_supers()' removal patch-sets
merged. The 12th piece removes dead code in exofs was supposed to go
through the exofs tree and blocked the 13th piece which removes
'sync_supers()' and was supposed to go via the VFS tree.

Both 12th and 13th pieces zap dead code. I man not sure delaying that to
v3.7 would be very beneficial for the kernel (why having a useless
thread waking up every 5 secs?). Would you let us merge this to -rc1?

Best Regards,
Artem Bityutskiy
