Hi Linus, please pull from:


...to receive a fix for a hang condition in the filesystem-dax core
when exercised by virtiofs. This bug has been there from the
beginning, but the condition has not triggered on other filesystems
since they hold a lock over invalidation events.

The changes have appeared in -next with no reported issues. The
patches were originally against v5.12 so you will see a minor conflict
with Willy's nr_exceptional changes. My proposed conflict resolution
appended below.


The following changes since commit 9f4ad9e425a1d3b6a34617b8ea226d56a119a717:
