The following set of patches attempt to fix the buffered write
locking problems (and there are a couple of peripheral patches
and cleanups there too).

Patches against 2.6.20-rc6. I was hoping that 2.6.20-rc6-mm2 would
be an easier diff with the fsaio patches gone, but the readahead
rewrite clashes badly :(

Please apply?

Thanks,
Nick

Have fixed a few issues since last time:
- better comments for the SetPageUptodate race
- actually fix the nobh problem rather than adding a comment
- use kmap_atomic instead of kmap

Patches against 2.6.20-rc7.

Thanks,
Nick
