Linus, do you have any objections against it? If it's OK for you
I'll roll a patch and submit it.
Another question: we still have a race in rename() on UNIX
filsystems (d_invalidate() stuff). It's pretty minor, so... Would you
accept it or it would better wait till 2.3? I do not dare to submit the
FAT-related piece - it's (a) too serious chunk and (b) I'm still not
satisfied with testing it got here.
Ob2.3: do you have any plans regarding the time when it will
begin? As in: late Spring/Fall/next year/go to hell/other ;-)
