I fixed one place in a follow up patch, but I might have missed some. As for the DEFINE_TRIVIAL_CLEANUP: yeah, I looked at that, but thought that since mnt_free_* accept NULLs the extra check added by DEFINE_TRIVIAL_CLEANUP would be unnecessary. Looking at it again, this kind of micro-opt is stupid. I'll remove those custom functions in favour of DEFINE_TRIVIAL_CLEANUP. > Also, it leaves the cescape() calls in for what we read from libmount, > which makes a lot of alarm bells ring in my head: doesn't libmount do > that on its own? > > Anyway, this patch really looks like it should have gone through a > couple of more revisions before it got merged.
