My plan is get as much of the remaining 60 patches into maintainer
trees for v5.6 and then send a pull request for whatever remains that
has not been picked up by anyone.

The 24 patches are the ones that didn't seem worth splitting into a
separate series, aside from these I also have v4l2, alsa and nfsd
pending, plus a final cleanup that removes the then-unused

So if you can pick up the xfs patches, that would help me.
