Release Notes: Removal of much debug code, minimized core kernel changes, moving /proc/sys/fs/jbd-debug control up into jbd itself, and removal of i_truncate_sem in favour of leaving the orphaned pages on the inactive_dirty LRU rather than swapping them out.
Release Notes: Removal of compatibility ifdefs for old-style quotas, a fix for an oops in ext3_writepage(), and truncate can zero page->mapping after block_write_full_page().
