Merge tag 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/borntraeger/linux
Pull WRITE_ONCE argument order change from Christian Borntraeger: "As discussed on LKML[1] it was agreed that WRITE_ONCE(x, val) is better than ASSIGN_ONCE(val, x) Lets change that for 3.19 as 3.19 has no user yet, but the first users will hit linux-next soon" [1] http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=142081181707596 * tag 'for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/borntraeger/linux: kernel: Change ASSIGN_ONCE(val, x) to WRITE_ONCE(x, val)
