First guesstimated patch

Based on the current proposed upstream patches. Not tested. Need to resolve locking order issue wrt the inode mutex. Currently this compiles, but is untested.

My version of Eric's test program

I updated this from the version I found on the mailing lists so that it works with the latest FIEMAP impelmentation. Might need to copy some kernel headers to /usr/include/linux by hand as it looks like make headers_install doesn't do that.

This hit Linus' kernel today.
