And here's the patch I applied to my trees and will show up in the next
-mm release.

I'll go convert Kay's mount patch to the new interface and add it too.

(and yes, I've added a "change" event that drivers and such can use to
tell userspace they they need to go look at a specific sysfs file. I
figured that this was going to be the next action request so I might as
well add it now...)

thanks,
