The only place the name "newnfs" shows up is for the name of the vnodes, when a lock on a vnode is held and you do "ps axHl" or similar and the name of the client side iod threads. That can be changed when the old one is removed, but it seems a pretty minor item to me.
When you mount with the new one, you "mount -t nfs ...", The module names are nfsd.ko, nfscl,ko (vs nfsserver.ko, nfsclient.ko for the old one. The naming of functions/globals within the code is under a variety of prefixes (I suppose you could argue that is poor coding style) and that was done to avoid any "multiply defines" when compiled/linked beside the old code. Is it just the name of the vnode for the client that you don't like being called "newnfs" or the name of the iod threads in the client or ??? that you feel needs changing from "newnfs" to "nfs"? rick > -- > Peter Wemm - pe...@wemm.org; pe...@freebsd.org; pe...@yahoo-inc.com; > KI6FJV > UTF-8: for when a ' or ... just won\342\200\231t do\342\200\246 _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
