One of the latest pull requests for the Linux 3.19 kernel is the XFS file-system changes.

XFS maintainer Dave Chinner sent in the newest file-system changes for merging into Linux 3.19 and they include:

- More work to consolidate the on-disk format header.

- Merging more structures into the XFS library (libxfs) for code that's shared between user and kernel-space.

- A new per-mount workqueue for fixing deadlocks between nested loop mounted file-systems.

- Code clean-ups, compiler warning fixes, and bug-fixes affecting ENOSPC/stats/quota off/pre-allocation.

More details via the pull request.
