Ben's patch is against the latest and greatest upstream GFS2 code,
which is in Steve Whitehouse's git repository.  To get that source
tree, which includes a complete upstream kernel tree, you can do
this command:

git clone git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/steve/gfs2-2.6-nmw.git gfs2-2.6.git

You may have to install the 'git' tool first.
