Please don't add my Signed-off-by when I have never even seen or reviewed
a patch -- that is completely unacceptable. Second, I don't think this
patch is suitable for 3.11, as it has not seen much testing outside of one
test program I had written. It's a long standing bug, so it isn't urgent
to get the fix into the tree. That said, it did pass a few tests I ran
last night, so it is probably suitable for the -next tree.

As for patch 1, it looks okay to me, but will need Al Viro's signoff.
