    Pull ktest confusion fix from Steven Rostedt:
     "With the v3.7-rc2 kernel, the network cards on my target boxes were
      not being brought up.
      I found that the modules for the network was not being installed.
      This was due to the config CONFIG_MODULES_USE_ELF_RELA that came
      before CONFIG_MODULES, and confused ktest in thinking that
      CONFIG_MODULES=y was not found.
      Ktest needs to test all configs and not just stop if something starts
      with CONFIG_MODULES."

  5. Lock splice_read and splice_write functions

    Functions generic_file_splice_read and generic_file_splice_write access
    the pagecache directly. For block devices these functions must be locked
    so that block size is not changed while they are in progress.
    This patch is an additional fix for commit b87570f ("Fix a crash
    when block device is read and block size is changed at the same time")
    that locked aio_read, aio_write and mmap against block size change.

  6. percpu-rw-semaphores: use rcu_read_lock_sched

    Use rcu_read_lock_sched / rcu_read_unlock_sched / synchronize_sched
    instead of rcu_read_lock / rcu_read_unlock / synchronize_rcu.
    This is an optimization. The RCU-protected region is very small, so
    there will be no latency problems if we disable preempt in this region.
    So we use rcu_read_lock_sched / rcu_read_unlock_sched that translates
    to preempt_disable / preempt_disable. It is smaller (and supposedly
    faster) than preemptible rcu_read_lock / rcu_read_unlock.

  7. percpu-rw-semaphores: use light/heavy barriers

    This patch introduces new barrier pair light_mb() and heavy_mb() for
    percpu rw semaphores.
    This patch fixes a bug in percpu-rw-semaphores where a barrier was
    missing in percpu_up_write.
    This patch improves performance on the read path of
    percpu-rw-semaphores: on non-x86 cpus, there was a smp_mb() in
    percpu_up_read. This patch changes it to a compiler barrier and removes
    the "#if defined(X86) ..." condition.

  10. VFS: don't do protected {sym,hard}links by default

    In commit 800179c ("This adds symlink and hardlink restrictions to
    the Linux VFS"), the new link protections were enabled by default, in
    the hope that no actual application would care, despite it being
    technically against legacy UNIX (and documented POSIX) behavior.
    However, it does turn out to break some applications.  It's rare, and
    it's unfortunate, but it's unacceptable to break existing systems, so
    we'll have to default to legacy behavior.
    In particular, it has broken the way AFD distributes files, see
    along with some legacy scripts.
    Distributions can end up setting this at initrd time or in system
    scripts: if you have security problems due to link attacks during your
    early boot sequence, you have bigger problems than some kernel sysctl
    setting. Do:
    	echo 1 > /proc/sys/fs/protected_symlinks
    	echo 1 > /proc/sys/fs/protected_hardlinks
    to re-enable the link protections.
    Alternatively, we may at some point introduce a kernel config option
    that sets these kinds of "more secure but not traditional" behavioural
    options automatically.

  21. qmi_wwan/cdc_ether: move Novatel 551 and E362 to qmi_wwan

    These devices provide QMI and ethernet functionality via a standard CDC
    ethernet descriptor.  But when driven by cdc_ether, the QMI
    functionality is unavailable because only cdc_ether can claim the USB
    interface.  Thus blacklist the devices in cdc_ether and add their IDs to
    qmi_wwan, which enables both QMI and ethernet simultaneously.

  22. net: usb: Fix memory leak on Tx data path

    Driver anchors the tx urbs and defers the urb submission if
    a transmit request comes when the interface is suspended.
    Anchoring urb increments the urb reference count. These
    deferred urbs are later accessed by calling usb_get_from_anchor()
    for submission during interface resume. usb_get_from_anchor()
    unanchors the urb but urb reference count remains same.
    This causes the urb reference count to remain non-zero
    after usb_free_urb() gets called and urb never gets freed.
    Hence call usb_put_urb() after anchoring the urb to properly
    balance the reference count for these deferred urbs. Also,
    unanchor these deferred urbs during disconnect, to free them
