New bug-free version of HPFS

All people who downloaded HPFS should download new bug-free version:

The previous version had a bug that it wrote error message when
write_inode was called while deleting file. I'm not using write_inode

Now I think it's ready for normal use. It doesn't corrupt filesystem (none
of the previously released versions corrupted filesystem!), doesn't crash,
doesn't write error messages. About 60 people downloaded it and I got
only one false bug report.

It's ready to be added to kernel. I know, now it's not good time for
adding features to kernel. Do you think it could be in some 2.2 or it must
wait until 2.3?
