          wrong, fix from Ben Hutchings.

      Pull trace fix from Steven Rostedt:
       "Tony Luck found that using the "uptime" trace clock that uses jiffies
        as a counter was converted to nanoseconds (silly), and after 1 hour 11
        minutes and 34 seconds, this monotonic clock would wrap, causing havoc
        with the tracing system and making the clock useless.
        He converted that clock to use jiffies_64 and made it into a counter
        instead of nanosecond conversions, and displayed the clock with the
        straight jiffy count, which works much better than it did in the past"

      pull request [net]: batman-adv 20140721
      here you have two fixes that we have been testing for quite some time
      (this is why they arrived a bit late in the rc cycle).
      Patch 1) ensures that BLA packets get dropped and not forwarded to the
      mesh even if they reach batman-adv within QinQ frames. Forwarding them
      into the mesh means messing up with the TT database of other nodes which
      can generate all kind of unexpected behaviours during route computation.
      Patch 2) avoids a couple of race conditions triggered upon fast VLAN
      deletion-addition. Such race conditions are pretty dangerous because
      they not only create inconsistencies in the TT database of the nodes
      in the network, but such scenario is also unrecoverable (unless
      nodes are rebooted).

      ipv4: fix buffer overflow in ip_options_compile() · 10ec9472
      Eric Dumazet authored
      There is a benign buffer overflow in ip_options_compile spotted by
      AddressSanitizer[1] :
      Its benign because we always can access one extra byte in skb->head
      (because header is followed by struct skb_shared_info), and in this case
      this byte is not even used.

      btrfs: test for valid bdev before kobj removal in btrfs_rm_device · 0bfaa9c5
      Eric Sandeen authored
      commit 99994cde
       btrfs: dev delete should remove sysfs entry
      added a btrfs_kobj_rm_device, which dereferences device->bdev...
      right after we check whether device->bdev might be NULL.
      I don't honestly know if it's possible to have a NULL device->bdev
      here, but assuming that it is (given the test), we need to move
      the kobject removal to be under that test.
      (Coverity spotted this)

      Btrfs: fix abnormal long waiting in fsync · 98ce2ded
      Liu Bo authored
      xfstests generic/127 detected this problem.
      With commit 7fc34a62
      , now fsync will only flush
      data within the passed range.  This is the cause of the above problem,
      -- btrfs's fsync has a stage called 'sync log' which will wait for all the
      ordered extents it've recorded to finish.
      In xfstests/generic/127, with mixed operations such as truncate, fallocate,
      punch hole, and mapwrite, we get some pre-allocated extents, and mapwrite will
      mmap, and then msync.  And I find that msync will wait for quite a long time
      (about 20s in my case), thanks to ftrace, it turns out that the previous
      fallocate calls 'btrfs_wait_ordered_range()' to flush dirty pages, but as the
      range of dirty pages may be larger than 'btrfs_wait_ordered_range()' wants,
      there can be some ordered extents created but not getting corresponding pages
      flushed, then they're left in memory until we fsync which runs into the
      stage 'sync log', and fsync will just wait for the system writeback thread
      to flush those pages and get ordered extents finished, so the latency is
      This adds a flush similar to btrfs_start_ordered_extent() in
      btrfs_wait_logged_extents() to fix that.
