LINUX STORAGE --
Ted Ts'o has sent in the EXT4 file-system changes for the Linux 3.19 kernel merge window.

EXT4 changes for Linux 3.19 include "lots of bug fixes", including changes that should improve CPU utilization and potential soft lock-ups when under heavy memory pressure. There's also a random assortment of other changes with just around 500 lines of EXT4 file-system code being touched by 26 changes for this merge window.

The pull request for this mature and widely-used Linux file-system can be found via the Indiana LKML archives.
