v2.6.31-rc6 inotify not reporting deleted files

I don't have a small test case yet, but I have an application that
uses inotify and watches a file and takes action when that file has been
deleted. Running that application on 2.6.31-rc6 the application is
no longer seeing the file being deleted.

With luck a word to the wise is all that is required for you to reproduce
this. Otherwise I will spend some time tomorrow making a small reproducer.
