The repository is where we do all the development, and
the code is made to build external kernel modules for 3.18. The patches
sent in this series are meant for 3.19 and 3.20 kernels, and while they
are based on the exact same sources, the patches differ in the following
minor details:

* Code is moved to appropriate locations, such as ipc/kdbus,
include/uapi, tools/testing/selftests/kdbus/, Documentation/ etc.

* Include file location amendments, "kdbus.h" vs. <uapi/linux/kdbus.h>

* Added iov_iter_kvec() usage, as that's a new API in v3.19

* The file system magic number is moved to include/uapi/linux/magic.h

* d_materialise_unique() is renamed to d_splice_alias() to catch up
with changes in 3.19

The commit this patch set is based on is tagged as "lkml-v3" in the
upstream repository now.
