Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner but I was on vacation. Thanks for
reviewing this work. Especially since this is the first major bug fixing merge
for the lustre client which means a lot of pain involved to iron out how to
do this. I have been pondering if pushing bug fixes before style cleanups
is the right thing to do. I pushed a bunch of bug fixes earlier and none got
merged which either means Greg is just backed up and hasn't the time to
merge them or style issues are higher priority. Assuming these bug fixes are
in scope of the staging tree. Should I continue to push this work first?
Well either way I should update this patch series so it ready to merge at some
