Hi Linus,

it is nice that you decided to postpone 3.8, because we found a couple
of bad bugs in UBI. Please, pull the fixes.

The following changes since commit 9489e9dcae718d5fde988e4a684a0f55b5f94d17:

  UBI: dont call ubi_self_check_all_ff() in __wl_get_peb() (2012-12-04 16:04:31 +0200)

Fixes for 2 brown-paperbag bugs introduced this merge window by the fastmap

1. The UBI background thread got stuck when a bit-flip happened because free
   LEBs was not removed from the "free" tree when we started using it.
2. I/O debugging checks did not work because we called a sleeping function in
   atomic context.

      UBI: remove PEB from free tree in get_peb_for_wl()
      UBI: dont call ubi_self_check_all_ff() in __wl_get_peb()
