Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/2]  i_version update - vfs part

Hi,

This is an update of the previous patches on the ext4 git tree, the 2
coming patches applies at the end of the current ext4-patch-queue, and
replaces the inode-version related patches:
64-bit-i_version.patch
i_version_hi.patch
ext4_i_version_hi_2.patch
i_version_update_ext4.patch

The first part deals with the vfs part. 
The i_version field of the inode is changed to be a 64-bit counter that
is set on every inode creation and that is incremented every time the
inode data is modified (similarly to the "ctime" time-stamp). 
The aim is to fulfill a NFSv4 requirement for rfc3530.
This first part concerns the vfs, it converts the 32-bit i_version in
the generic inode to a 64-bit, a flag is added in the super block in
order to check if the feature is enabled and the i_version is
incremented in the vfs.
