  ext4: fix kernel BUG on large-scale rm -rf commands (2012-08-17 09:42:17 -0400)

The following are all bug fixes and regressions.  The most notable are
the ones which cause problems for ext4 on RAID --- a performance
problem when mounting very large filesystems, and a kernel OOPS when
doing an rm -rf on large directory hierarchies on fast devices.

Theodore Ts'o (5):
      ext4: make sure the journal sb is written in ext4_clear_journal_err()
      ext4: avoid kmemcheck complaint from reading uninitialized memory
      ext4: don't call ext4_error while block group is locked
      ext4: fix long mount times on very big file systems
      ext4: fix kernel BUG on large-scale rm -rf commands
