Merge branch 'for-linus' of git://
Pull vfs fixes from Al Viro: "Followups to the parallel lookup work: - update docs - restore killability of the places that used to take ->i_mutex killably now that we have down_write_killable() merged - Additionally, it turns out that I missed a prerequisite for security_d_instantiate() stuff - ->getxattr() wasn't the only thing that could be called before dentry is attached to inode; with smack we needed the same treatment applied to ->setxattr() as well" * 'for-linus' of git:// switch ->setxattr() to passing dentry and inode separately switch xattr_handler->set() to passing dentry and inode separately restore killability of old mutex_lock_killable(&inode->i_mutex) users add down_write_killable_nested() update D/f/directory-locking
