Errr... Actually yes. Didn't realise this was a internal bug. In any
case, the problem statement in the bug is exactly what you mentioned in
your email above.

Recently changes went into vfs quotas to support ocfs2 quotas. If they
can do it through the vfs and use the generic quota tools, we could as
well. We're investigating how best to integrate our existing quota
mechanism with the vfs.

Cheers!
