LINUX STORAGE --
Darrick Wong has submitted the XFS file-system feature updates targeting the Linux 4.14 merge window.

The XFS work this time around is mostly about bug fixing while Wong notes Linux 4.15 may contain greater XFS feature work, "Most of these are cleanups and fixes for bad behavior, as we're mostly focusing on improving reliability this cycle (read: there's potentially a lot of stuff on the horizon for 4.15 so better to spend a few weeks killing other bugs now.)"

This Linux 4.14 work includes a nuymber of bug fixes, some code improvements, and a variety of other improvements for this file-system driver via this pull request.
