  Good point. I've merged the patch.

BTW for XFS folks: The structure definition looks somewhat odd (unaligned
definition of qs_flags, qs_uquota starts only at 32-bit boundary although
it has 64-bit fields in it) and I wouldn't be surprised if it needed compat
wrapper for 32-bit apps on some architectures...
