Yes, sorry. It's turning out to be a lot of work keeping the master
ext3 tree in sync with two (rather different) kernels, and running around
after all the changes which are happening in (ahem) one of them.

We prefer to test a lot before releasing, and the one time I skipped
that step was for 2.4.10, and it was the one which is broken. Sigh.

Rob, I've added this patch to the download site for interested parties
to use.

But for a merge with Alan we do have a few more changes backed up,
and some more testing must be done. I'll try to prepare 0.9.11
for -ac this week. I'm inclined to down-tools on Linus kernels
for a while, wait for things to settle down there.
