2006-02-03[PATCH] debugfs: hard link count wrongVincent Hanquez
Fix incorrect nlink of root inode for filesystems that use simple_fill_super().

2006-01-09[PATCH] mutex subsystem, semaphore to mutex: VFS, ->i_semJes Sorensen
This patch converts the inode semaphore to a mutex. I have tested it on XFS and compiled as much as one can consider on an ia64. Anyway your luck with it might be different.

2006-01-08[PATCH] shrink dentry structEric Dumazet
Some long time ago, dentry struct was carefully tuned so that on 32 bits UP, sizeof(struct dentry) was exactly 128, ie a power of 2, and a multiple of memory cache lines. Then RCU was added and dentry struct enlarged by two pointers, with nice results for SMP, but not so good on UP, because breaking the above tuning (128 + 8 = 136 bytes) This patch reverts this unwanted side effect, by using an union (d_u), where d_rcu and d_child are placed so that these two fields can share their memory needs. At the time d_free() is called (and d_rcu is really used), d_child is known to be empty and not touched by the dentry freeing. Lockless lookups only access d_name, d_parent, d_lock, d_op, d_flags (so the previous content of d_child is not needed if said dentry was unhashed but still accessed by a CPU because of RCU constraints) As dentry cache easily contains millions of entries, a size reduction is worth the extra complexity of the ugly C union.

2005-06-25[PATCH] fix fsync(dir) return value for ram-based filesystemsHugh Dickins
Any filesystem which is using simple_dir_operations will retunr -EINVAL for fsync() on a directory. Make it return zero instead. Signed-off-by: Hugh Dickins <hugh@veritas.com> Signed-off-by: Andrew Morton <akpm@osdl.org> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@osdl.org>
2005-06-20[PATCH] libfs: add simple attribute filesArnd Bergmann
Based on the discussion about spufs attributes, this is my suggestion for a more generic attribute file support that can be used by both debugfs and spufs. Simple attribute files behave similarly to sequential files from a kernel programmers perspective in that a standard set of file operations is provided and only an open operation needs to be written that registers file specific get() and set() functions. These operations are defined as void foo_set(void *data, u64 val); and u64 foo_get(void *data); where data is the inode->u.generic_ip pointer of the file and the operations just need to make send of that pointer. The infrastructure makes sure this works correctly with concurrent access and partial read calls. A macro named DEFINE_SIMPLE_ATTRIBUTE is provided to further simplify using the attributes. This patch already contains the changes for debugfs to use attributes for its internal file operations. Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
