Was anything printed in dmesg as to why?

Note that there's a #48 version of the patches, which I think involved
dropping the special write hook and calling the write file op instead.  At
least, I think that was #48 and not #47.

Your best bet is to try 2.6.30's latest rc.

I don't know.  It must support user xattrs and bmap.

Does that provide bmap?

I can't look at this much at the moment.  I'm in the US for a week for a
conference, and so my ability to try stuff is somewhat limited.
