Hi Linus,

please consider pulling the following gfs2 fixes for -rc2. The one thing that
stands out is this commit:

gfs2: Prevent endless loops in gfs2_file_buffered_write

We have a choice here between the proper fix in iomap_write_iter and
generic_perform_write and this patch, which is just a workaround. I've tried
to get your feedback on this before:


To me, it seems to be too late for the proper fix for v5.16 now; please advise
if you think otherwise.

gfs2: Prevent endless loops in gfs2_file_buffered_write (2021-11-10 18:22:37 +0100)

Fixes in gfs2:
* The current iomap_file_buffered_write behavior of failing the entire
write when part of the user buffer cannot be faulted in leads to an
endless loop in gfs2. Work around that in gfs2 for now.
* Various other bugs all over the place.
