Pushed as inotify09 with following changes:

* I've changed the test to use two threads and fzsync synchronization
  library we implemented especially for triggering races between

* Changed the licence to GPLv2+ which is default for LTP, I hope that
  you do not mind

* Added .gitignore and runtest entries
