We had this discussion at the last OpenSFS working group which we agreed
that the patch for LU-3534 should land after the feature freeze. Before the
merge conflict the patch did pass all maloo test and had the needed reviews.
The merge conflict was due to another change that landed that altered one
of the test in the test suite. So their is no C code change between versions of
the LU-3534 patch. The rest of the patches are fixes for bug so they fall into
the bug fixing phase.
