    Subject[PATCHSET] namei fixes
    	OK, here comes a patch series that hopefully should close all
    too-early-mntput() races in fs/namei.c. Entire area is convoluted as
    hell, so I'm splitting that series into _very_ small chunks.

    Patches alread in the tree close only (very wide) races in following
    symlinks (see "busy inodes after umount" thread some time ago). Unfortunately,
    quite a few narrower races of the same nature were not closed. Hopefully
    this should take care of all of them.

    Please, review and test. It survives local beating and AFAICS
    it's correct, but that's a hell of a critical area. Extra eyes would
    be very welcome.

    Patches will be sent in separate mails; they are also available on*. Series is based at 2.6.12-rc4
    and yes, there are 19 patches in it.
