So, does that mean fanotify can actually do something useful now, like monitor changes in a directory tree? Is a superset of inotify yet?
Last I looked, it couldn't notify on addition or removal of a file in a directory, which seems to me to make it just about completely useless for everything other than a "virus scanner". And I *really* don't understand how the heck a new API which is very similar to inotify, yet has a mostly-overlapping-but-slightly-different set of features got accepted. If you want both sets of features, what, you should just use both file watch APIs at the same time? Come on.
Anyone want to explain to me how this isn't a complete disaster?
