SubjectRe: [PATCH] reiserfs: fix broken xattr handling (heap corruption, bad retval)

Ping. I have not received any replies to this patch, which fixes a
kernel security bug, for a week.
Whose tree should this go through? reiserfs is marked as "supported",
but does not have a maintainer or a git repo listed, just a
mailinglist, so I guess it probably has to go through either Al Viro's
or akpm's tree? Looks like akpm signed off on the last commits in
reiserfs...
