Read-only bind mounts - will they be included in 2.4.x kernel?

There was some discussion 6 months ago about including Herbert
Poetzl's Bind Mount Extensions in a
2.4.x (x = 23 at the time) kernel. Can someone please give an update?

The Bind Mount Extensions allow bind-mounting part of a rw filesystem
read-only, which is very useful to people running vservers and other
chrooted stuff.
