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:

/usr/bin/ld: /home/sfr/next/tmp/ccWnssuq.o: in function `dump_attr_TIMESTAMP_INFO':
test-fsinfo.c:(.text+0x5d4): undefined reference to `pow'
/usr/bin/ld: test-fsinfo.c:(.text+0x618): undefined reference to `pow'
/usr/bin/ld: test-fsinfo.c:(.text+0x65c): undefined reference to `pow'
/usr/bin/ld: test-fsinfo.c:(.text+0x6a0): undefined reference to `pow'

Caused by commit

90b413cb970a ("vfs: syscall: Add fsinfo() to query filesystem information")

interacting with commit

8377bd2b9ee1 ("kbuild: Rename HOST_LOADLIBES to KBUILD_HOSTLDLIBS")

from the kbuild tree.

I have added the following merge fix patch for today:
