This is a patch which is (was) part of the SUSE kernel for quite a while.
Iirc someone from Fujitsu requested this.

Anyway, it has not been sent upstream yet, but looks useful.
Please consider to merge this one if you like it.
Otherwise it will probably get dropped to Nirvana as we only keep upstream 
accepted (not SuSE specific) patches.

I adjusted the patch to latest linux-2.6 git HEAD state and gave it a test 
compile.

Thanks,

      Thomas
