Looks like a reasonable function promotion to me...

Assuming I'm reading the metadiff properly, I think this merge
resolution looks correct given what both patchsets are trying to do.

Yes.

I've been distracted for months with first a Huge Customer Escalation
and now a <embargoed>, which means that I've been and continue to be
very distracted. I /think/ there are no other iomap patches being
proposed for inclusion -- Andreas' patches were applied as fixes during
5.16-rc, Christoph's DAX refactoring is now in the nvdimm tree, and that
leaves Matthew's folios refactoring.

So seeing as (I think?) there are no other iomap patches for 5.17, if
Matthew wants to add his branch to for-next and push directly to Linus
(rather than pushing to me to push the exact same branch to Linus) I
think that would be ... better than letting it block on me. IIRC I've
RVB'd everything in the folios branch. :(

FWIW I ran the 5.17e branch through my fstests cloud and nothing fell
out, so I think it's in good enough shape to merge to for-next.
