Yes, this is true. > OTOH, classic filesystems like UFS do not have any other means to translate > non-directory inode to name and parent at all, except the namecache hint. In fact, this is true for ZFS as well. While ZFS znodes have an attribute that specifies a (single) parent, it's obviously unreliable for files, because a file can be linked into multiple directories and then unlinked from a directory specified by the attribute. So, at the moment I do not have any good ideas on how to make this work. Maybe trying to use the parent attribute and failing when it's inconsistent would be good enough... -- Andriy Gapon _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
