Thanks a lot for these James!
Though I only received up to 133/151 - are 18 missing, or was there a

I've applied them on top of my "lustre" branch, then rebased everything
in my lustre-testing and lustre-backports (upto about 2.12.2) branches
on top of that - and checked that it all compiles.
I fixed the issues that I mentioned separately that I found in a few of
your patches, and also a couple of issues that I found in some of mine
(it is *so* helpful having two people working on this, we can catch each
others slip-ups).

I've pushed it all to github on a branch "lustre/lustre-XX" because I
couldn't think of a good name.
I'll review the differences between it and lustre-backport, and then
probably rename lustre-XX to lustre-backport - after I find out the
story about those missing 18 patches.
