Yeah, I'll change it to "fallback" - I started talking about it like that in
the docs anyway.

We're not far off.  There's a fair distance (in number of patches) between
this patchset and the completion, hence why I marked them as deprecated here,
intending to remove them at the end.  Between myself, Jeff and Dave we have
fscache, cachefiles, afs, ceph and nfs (almost) covered.  I have patches for
9p and I've given a partial patch for cifs to Steve and Shyam.
