|Subject:||[PATCH 0/28] Autofs NG Patchset 0.2|
|Date:||Mon, 25 Oct 2004 10:38:29 -0400|
Hi All, The following patchset (against 2.6.9) is a breakdown of all the changes required to support autofng (currently hosted at http://autofsng.bkbits.net/). I'm posting this patchset to get more people's eyes on the code. The series consists of core vfs changes as well as a couple small changes to the call_usermodehelper interface. I've also sent the autofsng filesystem as a single patch to introduce it seperated from the rest of the changes. This isn't ready for inclusion as there are bound to be errors and the interfaces described haven't settled. Please review / test / comment / flame. 01-unexport_umount_tree.diff - drop an export with no intree users 02-rename_mnt_fslink_mnt_expire.diff - give vfsmount->mnt_fslink a more appropriate name 03-move_expiry_into_vfs.diff - pull expiry stuff that was recently added to be contained within vfs 04-stat_on_root_shouldnt_stop_expire.diff - don't let ops on the root of a mountpoint affect expiry timeouts 05-expiry_is_countdown.diff - mountpoint expiry now has configurable timeouts 06-expiry_is_recursive.diff - allow for atomic expiry of subtrees of mountpoints 07-update_kafs_automount_expiry.diff - update AFS to use new expiry interface 08-drop_expire_umount_flag.diff - drop unused old expiry interface (MNT_EXPIRE flag to umount(2)) 09-expiry_semantics_bind.diff - fix up the expiry semantics and document them 10-move_next_mnt.diff - move next_mnt() in preparation for later patches 11-detachable_subtrees.diff - allow subtrees of mountpoints to not be bound to a struct namespace 12-remove_check_mnt.diff - remove the now bogus check_mnt calls (bogus with detachable_subtree.diff) 13-introduce_soft_ref_counts.diff - introduce 'soft' reference counts that don't affect umount(2) == EBUSY semantics 14-introduce_mountfd.diff - introduce the mountfd() syscall 15-mountfd_umounts.diff - add unmount functionality to mountfd interface 16-mountfd_attach.diff - add attach interface to mountfd interface 17-mountfd_walk.diff - allow for userspace to walk a tree of mountfds 18-mountfd_read.diff - allow for reading properties of a mountfd 19-mountfd_vfsexpire.diff - give vfs expiry an interface through mountfds 20-call_usermodehelper_cb.diff - add a way to have a caller of call_usermodehelper get a callback before execvce. 21-call_usermodehelper_execve_hack.diff - quick hack that allows for execve to be called without having to define errno. 22-export_put_namespace.diff - autofsng wants to call put_namespace. export it. 23-export_get_sb_pseudo.diff - autofsng wants get_sb_pseudo. 24-follow_link_on_root.diff - update follow_link logic to pass the right vfsmount to follow_link on root directory. 25-statfs_nofollow.diff - hack - statfs doesn't follow symlink on last component. 26-umount_mnt_nofollow.diff - allow umount to not follow symlink on last component. 27-temp_expiry_syscall.diff - dummy interface to expiry testing 28-autofsng_support.diff - big patch for autofsng. - To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in the body of a message to firstname.lastname@example.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html Please read the FAQ at http://www.tux.org/lkml/
