SubjectRe: NFS locking bug -- limited mtime resolution means nfs_lock() does not provide coherency guarantee

My suggestion is indeed effectivly (almost) doubling the inode size.

However, it provides an upgrade path, where you can double-boot with a
kernel that DOESN"T know about the inodes.

The 2.2 kernels already compute EXT2_INODE_SIZE based on a value in the
superblock. So an old kernel will be able to deal correctly if we
double the size of the inodes.

Credit me with at least *some* foresight. :-)
