    Merge branch 'xarray' of git://git.infradead.org/users/willy/linux-dax · dad4f140

    Pull XArray conversion from Matthew Wilcox:
     "The XArray provides an improved interface to the radix tree data
      structure, providing locking as part of the API, specifying GFP flags
      at allocation time, eliminating preloading, less re-walking the tree,
      more efficient iterations and not exposing RCU-protected pointers to
      its users.
      This patch set
       1. Introduces the XArray implementation
       2. Converts the pagecache to use it
       3. Converts memremap to use it
      The page cache is the most complex and important user of the radix
      tree, so converting it was most important. Converting the memremap
      code removes the only other user of the multiorder code, which allows
      us to remove the radix tree code that supported it.
      I have 40+ followup patches to convert many other users of the radix
      tree over to the XArray, but I'd like to get this part in first. The
      other conversions haven't been in linux-next and aren't suitable for
      applying yet, but you can see them in the xarray-conv branch if you're
