This patch seems to be slightly mangled; patch complains if
fs/dquot.c.orig already exists, though it doesn't seem to create such
a file in either case.

I had to back these two patches out to build for ppc:

LD .tmp_vmlinux1
arch/ppc/kernel/built-in.o(.text+0x32a2): In function `execve':
arch/ppc/kernel/entry.S: undefined reference to `errno'
undefined reference to `errno'
make: *** [.tmp_vmlinux1] Error 1

Probably just another reason to drop them. I think I'm about to
find out if I should have backed out the syscall patch too. :)
