The branch is now in
let me know if I've missed acked-by or reviewed-by, I added those sent
to the mailinglist and added mine to the btrfs ones and to the iov_iter

I'll add the patchset to my for-next so it gets picked by linux-next and
will keep testing it for at least a week.

Though this is less than the expected time before merge window, the
reasoning is that it's exporting helpers that are going to be used in
various subsystems. The changes in btrfs are simple and would allow to
focus on the other less trivial conversions. ETA for the pull request is
mid of the 2nd week of the merge window or after rc1.
