When it gets back to the top of my priority pile. Last time I sent
it there was zero interest in reviewing it from fs/vfs developers
but it attracted lots of obnoxious shouting from some RTPREEMPT
people about using bit locks. If there's interest in getting it
merged, then I can add it to my backlog of stuff to do...

As it is, I'm buried layers deep right now, so I really have no
bandwidth to deal with this in the foreseeable future. The code is
there, it works just fine, if you want to push it through the
process of getting it merged, you're more than welcome to do so.
