Sure, I'll put it up with my -rc2 pull request to Jens.

A couple of sanity checks (for my understanding at least):

Why does bch_data_insert_start() no longer need to call
set_gc_sectors(op->c) now that bch_cache_set_alloc and bch_gc_thread do?

Does bch_cache_set_alloc() even need to call set_gc_sectors since
bch_gc_thread() does before calling bch_btree_gc?

Also I'm curious, why change invalidate_needs_gc from a bitfield?
