I apologize if I missed the patch on its first issue.

I do agree that it should be put in the v2.0.* kernels ASAP,
though I haven't yet tried it.

Of course I'd also like to see in in a v2.1.* kernel :-)
(I'd do it myself, but as I wrote before I'm not familiar enough
with the fs code).

Thank you!
