applying patch-3.10.33-vs2.3.6.8.diff to linux-3.10.36 fails.

the change of atomically setting ext4 inode flags in fs/ext4/inode.c [1]
causes two linux-vserver patch rejects.

Hunk #1 FAILED at 38.
Hunk #2 FAILED at 4045.


the first failure is only because of including a new header (and
invalidating the context).

to address the second failure, i modified the linux-vserver code (which
includes both i_flags and i_vflags) to update inode flags atomically (ie call
set_mask_bits), just like 3.10.36 introduced. the patch also references
ext4_get_inode_flags(), but that's only because the linux-vserver changes
within that function are in the same context as the ext4_set_inode_flags
conflicts, not because that function changed in 3.10.36.

the attached patch fixes the two failures (and Makefile's EXTRAVERSION, too).

1. acquire linux-3.10.36
2. apply patch-3.10.33-vs2.3.6.8.diff
3. apply the attached patch-3.10.33-36-vs2.3.6.8.diff

i've successfully built the resulting kernel, but i'm currently unable to
test it (against testme.sh and testfs.sh in virtualbox) until this weekend.
if somebody tests the resulting kernel before then, then please reply with
your results.
