Dave Chinner has submitted the XFS file-system updates for the Linux 4.7 kernel merge window.

Similar to the EXT4 and Btrfs and F2FS changes for Linux 4.7, the XFS work isn't particularly exciting.

The XFS material this merge window comes down to fixes, cleanups, and minor improvements. There are fixes for mount line parsing, transaction allocation cleanups, optimized kmem_realloc, configurable error handling for metadata write errors, and other fixes. More details on these XFS Linux 4.7 changes can be found via this pull request.
