Hm.  I realized while putting together for-next branches that I really
would have preferred the three iomap patches at the start so that I
could push those parts through the iomap tree.  The changes required to
resequence the series is minor and the iomap changes (AFAICT) are inert
if the calling fs doesn't set IOMAP_DIO_OVERWRITE_ONLY, so I think it's
low risk to push the iomap changes into iomap-for-next as a 5.12 thing.

The rest of the xfs patches in this series would form the basis of a
second week pull request (or not) since I think I ought to evaluate the
effects on performance for a little longer.

That said, if you /don't/ want me to pull any of this for 5.12, holler
and I'll pull back. :)
