Hi Linus,

could you please pull the following two commits to fix the gfs2
deadlocks resulting from the conversion to ->readahead in commit
d4388340ae0b ("fs: convert mpage_readpages to mpage_readahead")?

The first commit adds a new IOCB_NOIO flag to generic_file_read_iter.

In the previous version [1] which you've acked [2] and Matthew Willcox
has reviewed [3], ->readpage could still be called even when IOCB_NOIO
was set, so I've added an additional check above that call and I've
dropped the ack and reviewed-by tags.  In addition, bit 8 is now left
unused for the new IOCB_WAITQ flag in the block tree per Jens Axboe's
