So I can take the cleanup (which will be different given the changes
that are ready to get merged once the merge window opens), but it
looks like the the second ext4 patch can't go in until we get
agreement that changes to the VFS layer should go in, correct? So
we'll have a merge order dependency here.

(And this one will be the 2nd merge order dependency we have in the
ext4 tree, since I also have some patches in the unstable portion of
the tree which are waiting for some tracing patches to go in.)

OK, what I'll probably do is to merge the core VFS patch plus the 2nd
ext4 patch into the ext4 patch queue in the unstable portion of the
queue for testing purposes, but I won't actually push the VFS core
changes. We can figure out later who actually pushes the ext4 patch
which utilizes the new VFS infrastructure.
