* 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/viro/vfs-2.6: truncate: use new helpers truncate: new helpers fs: fix overflow in sys_mount() for in-kernel calls fs: Make unload_nls() NULL pointer safe freeze_bdev: grab active reference to frozen superblocks freeze_bdev: kill bd_mount_sem exofs: remove BKL from super operations fs/romfs: correct error-handling code vfs: seq_file: add helpers for data filling vfs: remove redundant position check in do_sendfile vfs: change sb->s_maxbytes to a loff_t vfs: explicitly cast s_maxbytes in fiemap_check_ranges libfs: return error code on failed attr set seq_file: return a negative error code when seq_path_root() fails. vfs: optimize touch_time() too vfs: optimization for touch_atime() vfs: split generic_forget_inode() so that hugetlbfs does not have to copy it fs/inode.c: add dev-id and inode number for debugging in init_special_inode() libfs: make simple_read_from_buffer conventional
