Still, it didn't meet my (and apparently Ted's) is-it-needed-in-late-rc
criteria.

From a later email:

The jbd2 one went into the ext4 tree.

Alas, -mm's are slow nowadays. Due to a combination of a) the difficulty
of getting it all to compile, let alone boot on sevenish machines, and b)
waning motivation due to me wondering why we merge so much new stuff when
we've just written so many bugs.

My tree is always available at http://userweb.kernel.org/~akpm/mmotm/ -
it's updated multiple times per day.

The jbd2 changes got moved into the ext4 tree at
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/tytso/ext4-patches/LATEST/broken-out/
hence I dropped them from the mm-specific patches. I still have the patch,
but it's now known as
ext4-mm-jbd2-sparse-warnings-in-revokec-journalc.patch because Ted now owns
it.

Whatever. As long as it got merged.
