Subjectlinux-next: build failure after merge of the vfs tree
Hi Al,

After merging the vfs tree, today's linux-next build (x86_64 allmodconfig)
failed like this:

/home/sfr/next/next/fs/f2fs/super.c: In function 'f2fs_remount':
/home/sfr/next/next/fs/f2fs/super.c:1589:16: error: 'MS_RDONLY' undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean 'IS_RDONLY'?
if ((*flags & MS_RDONLY) && test_opt(sbi, DISABLE_CHECKPOINT)) {

Caused by commit

dcf8001d292b ("vfs: Suppress MS_* flag defs within the kernel unless explicitly enabled")

interacting with commit

f80f781514ef ("f2fs: checkpoint disabling")

from the f2fs tree.

I have added the following merge fix patch for today. If it is correct,
I assume that it could be applied to f2fs tree as the the other uses of
MS_RDONLY have already been changed to SB_RDONLY. (There is another
use of MS_READONLY in this function that is already cleaned up in the
vfs tree commit.)
