well, ffs for a start - see my response to Martin in this thread.

I know, but vfs_composefh_alloc() believes the storage size returned
by the VFS_VPTOFH() and allocates that much space even if it is less
than FHANDLE_SIZE_MIN.  There is an assert that would catch that if I
had DIAGNOSTIC (I think) in my kernel config but I don't.
