    I read the patch. It was quite monotonous (I guess that's a good thing)
    But it wasn't clear to me why you added the INIT_LIST_HEAD()s
    everywhere. Is this for stopping parallel walkers?

    Ok there's a comment in the doc: "VFS expects it to be initialized"
    Is that really true today? I don't think the old code does that.

    Other than that it seems straight forward.
