OK, I'll pick up changes from -testing until directed elsewhere.

BTW, here are couple things I've noticed with bcache:

- The log messages seem to have an extra newline at the end.

- bcache doesn't appear to be establishing proper holders on the devices
  it uses for the backing and cache devices.
  - lsblk doesn't show any associations with bcache devices.
  - the fio utility isn't able to get any stats for the bcache device or
    the devices bcache uses.

- if I 'stop' a bcache device (using sysfs) while it is mounted; once I
  unmount the filesystem the device that bcache was using as a cache
  still has an open count of 1 but the bcache device then no longer
  exists
