It's not *quite* a no-brainer. Guys, please hold that one off for a while;
we have more massage to do in the area and I *really* want to get atomic
open work finished (== intents gone, revalidation vs mountpoints sanitized,
etc.) before anything else is done to fs/namie.c. OK?

And as for .. - userland can bloody well check that on its own if it cares.
Let's keep it simple, please - we already have things far too complicated
in there for my taste.
