Actually it should just go away.  It's a leftover from when we had
code for Linux 2.4 and Linux 2.6 in the same ptools repository.

I was going to suggest near the end of the merge window that we'll
simply apply a big git rename to kill all the subdirectories which
create nothing but pain.  Now that the modular quota options (which
never made it to mainline anyway) is gone there's absolutely no need
for the quota directly, and support/ only has the uuid helpers left,
which are about to get mostly replaced by common code anyway.
