    the quota fix was included in the next (test) release
    so default quota will work again ...

    the Quota Hash Abstraction is neither a (big) performance
    gain nor a feature bonus for the end user ... it is more
    an enhancement to the code itself, allowing to have more
    than one quota hash for arbitrary purposes ...

    I doubt, that this code will ever make it into mainline
    without another 'good' reason to use it, but maybe the
    --bind mount quota stuff would be such a reason, if the
    interest for such things will eventually grow ...
