      Pull libnvdimm and dax updates from Dan Williams:
       "Save for a few late fixes, all of these commits have shipped in -next
        releases since before the merge window opened, and 0day has given a
        build success notification.
        The ext4 touches came from Jan, and the xfs touches have Darrick's
        reviewed-by. An xfstest for the MAP_SYNC feature has been through
        a few round of reviews and is on track to be merged.
         - Introduce MAP_SYNC and MAP_SHARED_VALIDATE, a mechanism to enable
           'userspace flush' of persistent memory updates via filesystem-dax
           mappings. It arranges for any filesystem metadata updates that may
           be required to satisfy a write fault to also be flushed ("on disk")
           before the kernel returns to userspace from the fault handler.
           Effectively every write-fault that dirties metadata completes an
           fsync() before returning from the fault handler. The new
           MAP_SHARED_VALIDATE mapping type guarantees that the MAP_SYNC flag
           is validated as supported by the filesystem's ->mmap() file
         - Add support for the standard ACPI 6.2 label access methods that
           replace the NVDIMM_FAMILY_INTEL (vendor specific) label methods.
           This enables interoperability with environments that only implement
           the standardized methods.
         - Add support for the ACPI 6.2 NVDIMM media error injection methods.
         - Add support for the NVDIMM_FAMILY_INTEL v1.6 DIMM commands for
           latch last shutdown status, firmware update, SMART error injection,
           and SMART alarm threshold control.
         - Cleanup physical address information disclosures to be root-only.
         - Fix revalidation of the DIMM "locked label area" status to support
           dynamic unlock of the label area.
         - Expand unit test infrastructure to mock the ACPI 6.2 Translate SPA
           (system-physical-address) command and error injection commands.

      Pull  more device mapper updates from Mike Snitzer:
       "Given your expected travel I figured I'd get these fixes to you sooner
        rather than later.
         - a DM multipath stable@ fix to silence an annoying error message
           that isn't _really_ an error
         - a DM core @stable fix for discard support that was enabled for an
           entire DM device despite only having partial support for discards
           due to a mix of discard capabilities across the underlying devices.
         - a couple other DM core discard fixes.
         - a DM bufio @stable fix that resolves a 32-bit overflow"
