    Pull xfs fixes from Dave Chinner:
     "This update fixes a warning in the new pagecache_isize_extended() and
      updates some related comments, another fix for zero-range
      misbehaviour, and an unforntuately large set of fixes for regressions
      in the bulkstat code.
    
      The bulkstat fixes are large but necessary.  I wouldn't normally push
      such a rework for a -rcX update, but right now xfsdump can silently
      create incomplete dumps on 3.17 and it's possible that even xfsrestore
      won't notice that the dumps were incomplete.  Hence we need to get
      this update into 3.17-stable kernels ASAP.
    
      In more detail, the refactoring work I committed in 3.17 has exposed a
      major hole in our QA coverage.  With both xfsdump (the major user of
      bulkstat) and xfsrestore silently ignoring missing files in the
      dump/restore process, incomplete dumps were going unnoticed if they
      were being triggered.  Many of the dump/restore filesets were so small
      that they didn't evenhave a chance of triggering the loop iteration
      bugs we introduced in 3.17, so we didn't exercise the code
      sufficiently, either.
    
      We have already taken steps to improve QA coverage in xfstests to
      avoid this happening again, and I've done a lot of manual verification
      of dump/restore on very large data sets (tens of millions of inodes)
      of the past week to verify this patch set results in bulkstat behaving
      the same way as it does on 3.16.
    
      Unfortunately, the fixes are not exactly simple - in tracking down the
      problem historic API warts were discovered (e.g xfsdump has been
      working around a 20 year old bug in the bulkstat API for the past 10
      years) and so that complicated the process of diagnosing and fixing
      the problems.  i.e. we had to fix bugs in the code as well as
      discover and re-introduce the userspace visible API bugs that we
      unwittingly "fixed" in 3.17 that xfsdump relied on to work correctly.
    
      Summary:
    
       - incorrect warnings about i_mutex locking in pagecache_isize_extended()
         and updates comments to match expected locking
       - another zero-range bug fix for stray file size updates
       - a bunch of fixes for regression in the bulkstat code introduced in
         3.17"
