What sort of implications are you concerned about? We're no longer
exposing anything via the xattr interface, and all of the changes are
not contained strictly within the ext4 tree.

There are still are some cleanups which I'm still in the process of
applying, but I considered it more likely than not something that was
ready for 4.1, so that's why I let it go into the ext4 dev branch for
testing in linux-next.
