What's the plan for this series? It looks like somehow an old v2 of the
original series made it into mainline, so I'd like to see these fixes get
in ASAP. I'm still slightly nervous about pathological setting of the
FSCHECK flag due to e.g. a PMU IRQ causing a livelock in do_notify_resume,
but that's at least less likely with this fix :/
