Yes I would like an ack from Al to have it in linux-next. Note that
wouldn't have to be an ack on the patches or agreement to merge it next
window, just an "ok to get wider review and testing" type of thing.

If Linus's is intending *not* to pull it, then it's not so urgent, and I
might instead ask Andrew to host it in -mm for a while. I just don't
want to get caught with my pants down here, because there are a good
number of untested filesystems and things.
