People use minixfs?  I'm a bit surprised.

We'd need a detailed changelog please.

The patch gets lots of rejects.  More than I'm prepared to fix up so I can
take a look at it in tkdiff, unfortunately.

I suspect the patch was against some prehistoric kernel like 2.6.16 ;)

That's a peculiar thing to do.

And here I think we've just leaked that memory.

And again.  Here we've definitely leaked it.
