I would obviously prefer that route, but my assumption has been that the
code needs some review and a core developer to sign off on it before that
can happen. I've posted the patchset a few times now, and haven't gotten
much response. If there is something else I can or should be doing to
push this upstream, I'm all ears...

The code certainly isn't ready for production, but the client code at
least has seen relatively few changes recently. Our internal testing is
ramping up in scale and so far we're primarily working out problems with
the server side daemons.

I'm not quite sure what the criteria for mainline inclusion is, as it
seems to vary from file system to file system, but from my perspective
any move upstream can only help.
