Sorry, I'll be conservative in sending pull requests to you in the
future. The one commit that wasn't a bug fix, cleanup, or prereq for
a bugfix/cleanup was an optimization for a feature that landed during
this merge window (large xattrs using xattr inodes).

The patches did go through a full regression test cycle, and
everything was reviewed by at least a second person, but yeah, -rc4 is
getting a bit late in the cycle. I certainly wouldn't have sent it
any later...
