Argh... Fallout from ->permission() patch series. I've folded that into
rebase (along with Randy's compile fixes and missing bit in capability.c
in ->inode_permission() patch; AFAICS takes care of all mismerges as well).
In the meanwhile, see the patch below on top of next-20080718:

diff --git a/fs/namei.c b/fs/namei.c
index a15c155..c0a64e2 100644
--- a/fs/namei.c
+++ b/fs/namei.c
@@ -286,7 +286,8 @@ int permission(struct inode *inode, int mask, struct nameidata *nd)
if (retval)
return retval;

- return security_inode_permission(inode, mask);
+ return security_inode_permission(inode,
+ mask & (MAY_READ|MAY_WRITE|MAY_EXEC));
}
