We have four patches, all with the same title - please avoid doing this.

I could invent titles for them (as I often have to do), but I think it
would be best if you were to do so.  That way, we avoid confusion and
people who later google for the patch's title to understand the patch's
background will get better coverage.

So... resend, please?

Documentation/SubmittingPatches has some tips on all of this - search term
is "Subject:".

OK, sorry.
I was waiting to hear from you anyway as, for some reason, at least one
of the posts had HTML and so was bounced form lkml and fsdevel. I'll
just re-send'em all.
