Hi Adrian!

Thanks a lot for your reply! I was able to fix my problem by substituting
DQUOT_SYNC by DQUOT_SYNC_DEV in include/linux/quotaops.h and
fs/buffer.c. I simply did a

find . -name "*.[ch]" | xargs grep -n DQUOT_SYNC

starting from /usr/src/linux. (I think somebody else mailed this already).

Indeed, it doesn't. I was overlooking that your patch is only for kernels
with the new quota code in your previous mail. Sorry.

It is the 2.4.18 kernel coming with Debian testing (Woody) with the
included xfs and evms patches applied.

You don't have to, but thanks anyway for your help.

If it for any kernel having the new quota code, then this is probably a
good idea.
