What regressions are you seeing?

Either the dev branch or the master branch.

The dev-with-revert and dev2 were branches that I had created when
investigating a potential regression with the invalidage page range
patch set. I've since determined that it's a timing issue and it's
not a new regression --- we've had xfstests failures with test
generic/300 for a while now.
