Thx for working on these patches that recently hit mainline.

The last patch listed above afaics (I might be wrong there!) is a fix
for (~"data added to
a newly created file that uses compression only becomes visible after a
remount or a forced cache drop"). That regression from the 6.2 days
sounds somewhat concerning, hence allow me to ask: do you plan to submit
this fix for backporting to the 6.7.y and 6.6.y series? If not: do you
think it should be save to include those there?

Side not, while at it: are any of the other patches maybe also worth
