Trying to redirect this thread back to the original patches....

What do people think? Should I try to push these two patches to Linus
now, to make it easier for other file systems who might be interested
in implementing FITRIM functionality?

Or should I wait until the 2.6.37-rc1 window?

We're at -rc3, so a change like this is a bit late, but so far no one
else is using trim_fs besides ext4, and it will make life easier for
other file systems, so I'm willing to try pushing this to Linus if
there is consensus from other fs developers.
