That sounds good to me, thanks!

I haven't had time to look at the other patches in detail but they look
good to me in principle.
I'll try to find time to run some xfstests this week to check for
regressions with the other patches (I don't have any list, so run some
before/after with qemu in cache=mmap/loose modes perhaps?) and we can
submit them next merge window unless you're in a hurry.
Some are obvious fixes (not calling in fscache code in loose mode) and
could get in faster but I don't think we should rush e.g. option
parsing... Well that probably won't get much tests in -next, I'll leave
that up to you.

Do you (still?) have a branch that gets merged in linux-next, or shall I
take the patches in for that, or do you want to ask Stefen?
(I should probably just check myself, but it's 5am and I'll be lazy)
