  I've pushed out the series to:
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/jack/linux-fs.git quota_interface

  BTW, I've already implemented suggestions by Christoph so it's not
exactly what was sent to the list (but very close). I'd also welcome your
opinion on usage of BBTOB() and BTOBB() macros in fs/quota/quota.c - to be
able to use them I have to move them out of fs/xfs/libxfs/xfs_fs.h to
somewhere in include/. Christoph doesn't like it much and would prefer
quota code just opencoded these macros. I don't really care but you two
should agree :)
