And to answer Joel's statment of these three two already implement their
own ->getattr. Also it doesn't mean a filesystem has to completely
reimplement it, they just have to override it by reusing generic_fillattr,

static int my_getattr(struct vfsmount *mnt, struct dentry *dentry,
struct kstat *stat)
int error = generic_fillattr(dentry->d_inode, stat);
if (!error)
stat->blksize = something_useful;
return error;
