OK, I've applied everything except the last one (all in for-linus in
vfs-2.6.git). As for the stuff outside current->root (or other namespace,
for that matter)... I don't like the idea of using // - as it is,
we have a nice sane check (path[0] != '/') and if anything, I'd consider
going for deleted:<path> instead of <path> (deleted) as we have now.
_That_ would eliminate the major annoyance with handling of unlinked/rmdired -
we'd get rid of guessing whether that's a file really called "a (deleted)"
or an unlinked one that used to be called "a"...
