Subject: [PATCH -v3 0/8] file notification: fsnotify a unified file notification backend
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel.malware
Date: Tuesday 25th November 2008 17:20:51 UTC (over 9 years ago)
This patch series implements fsnotify a filesystem notification backend
which
should be the basis for dnotify, inotify, and eventually fanotify.

This series only reimplements dnotify using the new fsnotify backend.  If
accepted I will do the work to port inotify as well.  Currently struct
inode
goes from:

#ifdef CONFIG_DNOTIFY
       unsigned long           i_dnotify_mask; /* Directory notify events
*/
       struct dnotify_struct   *i_dnotify; /* for directory notifications
*/
#endif

to:
#ifdef CONFIG_FSNOTIFY
       unsigned long           i_fsnotify_mask; /* all events this inode
cares about */
       struct list_head        i_fsnotify_mark_entries; /* fsnotify mark
entries */
       spinlock_t              i_fsnotify_lock; /* protect the entries list
*/
#endif

so the inode still grows, but the inotify fields will be dropped as well
resulting in a smaller struct inode.  These are all the fields fanotify
will
want as well.

rwlocks have been completely dropped in favor of even smaller critical
section
spinlocks.  i_lock is no longer used to protect dnotify information and
instead the more specific i_fsnotify_lock is used.

Eric Paris (8):
      dnotify: reimplement dnotify using fsnotify
      fsnotify: add in inode fsnotify markings
      fsnotify: add group priorities
      fsnotify: unified filesystem notification backend
      fsnotify: use the new open-exec hook for inotify and dnotify
      fsnotify: sys_execve and sys_uselib do not call into fsnotify
      fsnotify: pass a file instead of an inode to open, read, and write
      filesystem notification: create fs/notify to contain all fs
notification
