Sorry, I may not have made it clear in the cover letter here. This
patchset also depends on the audit patchset I sent on Sept. 7th. The
cover letter of that set is:

     [PATCH v6 00/10] audit: overhaul audit_names handling to allow for retrying on path-based syscalls

You may find it easier to just pull down the "estale" branch in my tree
and pop off the patches for the estale series itself.
