From what I understand, much of the motivation for writing inotify was to create a dnotify replacement that doesn't require open file descriptors on the watched object(s).
I don't know whether the fd thing is a typo here, but I can verify that using an inotify-enabled 2.6.12 with gamin doesn't result in the unmounting problems that famd and dnotify does.
