The quota code you have in -ac is new Jan Kara's stuff (which supports
both formats, etc) plus the ext3 deadlock avoidance and the compat stuff ?

Christoph, for what reason have you removed the ext3 deadlock avoidance
patches? And also, what else have you changed wrt originals Jan code ?

Lets have -pre6 soon to fix up this mess (which is causing DEADLOCKS), ok?
