	The following patches comprise the bulk of Ocfs2 updates for the
2.6.30 merge window. Aside from larger, more involved fixes, we're adding
the following features, which I will describe in the order their patches

	Sunil's exported some more state to our debugfs files, and
consolidated some other aspects of our debugfs infrastructure. This will
further aid us in debugging Ocfs2 issues.

	By leveraging our very flexible b-tree code, I was able to add
support for directory indexing. Indexed directories in Ocfs2 look like
regular directories, except they have an additional btree with records
indexed by name hash. This design means we get to keep the existing
POSIX-ness of our directory code, but operations like lookup get the
increased performance of a simple btree lookup.

	Tao's contribution this cycle comes in the form of inode allocation
optimizations. These involved the usual heuristics - try to allocate inodes
close to their parent directory, remember which allocation group was
previously visited, etc. The resulting code yielded a 10x improvement on
some cold-cache stat workloads.

	Finally, Sunil has turned the fs/ocfs2/dlm mastery list into a hash
table. This fixes some performance issues we had seen on large clusters
very active mastery (typically, lots of unlinks, renames and creates).
